Message for the Episcopal Churchwomen's Yearbook — 1975-76 
from the Right Reverend Thomas A. Fraser 

Bishop of the Diocese of North Carolina 

"In the beginning was the Word." These are the very well-known and loved opening 
verses of the fourth Gospel. There is a German translation which reads," In the beginning 
was the Deed." 

The comparison of these two translations brings to us a real message in a day when church 
and society are struggling for meaningful program. The Word must be acted out in Deed. 
The things we do must have the content of the Word. 

We might say this in another way: Love is sentimental without justice and there can be no 
justice without love. Or, to try it still another way: Worship that begins and ends at the 
Altar can be nothing more than ritual and ceremony. We must go to the Altar, receive the 
Bread of Heaven and the Cup of Salvation and then go out into the world and carry this new 
life and hope to our fellowman. This is the essence of all Christian program which saves it 
from being dull and dry and gives to it meaning and enthusiasm. 

It seems to me, as I review the work of the Episcopal Churchwomen of the Diocese, that 
they are beginning to move in this direction. They are striving for worship and action full 
of love and justice. In short, they are trying to act out the Word and put the meaning of the 
Word into all of their deeds. It is this thrust which, I believe, is giving enthusiasm and 
strength to the life of our Episcopal Churchwomen and I want to cheer you on. 

Faithfully, Your Bishop 






PRAYERS 



RENEWAL 
Almighty God, by whose Holy Spirit your children are led to acknowledge Jesus Christ 
as Lord and Savior; grant that this same Spirit may so dwell in us that we may be daily 
renewed, and manifest in our lives the Love that reaches out in blessing to all people. 
Empower us to help build up your Kingdom on earth to your honor and glory. We ask this, 
gracious Father, in the name of your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

GUIDANCE 
Direct us, O Lord, in all our doings, with Thy most gracious favor and further us with 
Thy continual help; that in all our works begun, continued and ended in Thee, we may 
glorify Thy Holy Name, and finally, by Thy mercy, obtain everlasting life; through Jesus 
Christ our Lord. Amen. 

EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 

Almighty God, our heavenly Father, bless we pray Thee, our work for the extension 
of Thy Kingdom, and make us so thankful for the precious gift to us of Thy beloved Son, 
that we may pray fervently, labor diligently, and give liberally to make Him known to 
all nations as their Saviour and their King through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Almighty God, whose love reacheth unto the world's end, and who didst- send Thy 
blessed Son to redeem all mankind, help us, we pray Thee, so to reveal Thy love in prayer 
and work and stewardship, that by Thy spirit all nations and people may be baptized into 
one body, even as all are redeemed by one Saviour; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

MISSIONS 
Almighty God, help us we pray Thee, to shed abroad the light of Thy Church in all the 
world. Give us greater zeal for Thy Kingdom, that we may offer abundantly our prayers, 
our work, and our gifts; so that the earth may be filled with the knowledge of Thy glory, 
as the waters cover the sea, through Thy Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

CHRISTIAN SOCIAL RELATIONS 
Send us, O God, as Thy messengers to hearts without a home, to lives without love, to 
the crowds without a guide. Send us to the children whom none have blessed, to the 
famished whom none have visited, to the fallen whom none have lifted, to the bereaved 
whom none have comforted. Kindle Thy flame on the altars of our hearts, that others 
may be warmed thereby; causing Thy light to shine in our souls, that others may see the 
way; keep our sympathies and insight ready, our wills keen, our hands quick to help our 
brothers in their need; for Christ's sake. Amen. 

UNITED THANK OFFERING 

O God, who art the hope of all peoples everywhere, we thank Thee for the outpourings 
of love and generosity which have enabled us to respond to some of the world's needs in 
places far and near; guide us as we face changing times and new frontiers; keep our hearts 
thankful and our vision clear as we work to fulfill our vocation and ministry as members 
of the body of thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Accept, O Father, this joyful sacrifice of thanksgiving and praise, and bless these gifts 
to the setting forward of Thy Kingdom; that as we have gratefully received the benefits 
Thy bounty has bestowed, so we may cheerfully share them with Thy children in all the 
world; for His sake whose life and death and rising to life again were a song of praise to 
Thee, O Thou Most Holy, our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen. 

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 
O God, who has sent Thy beloved Son to be unto us the Way, the Truth and the Life; grant 
that we, looking unto Him may set forward the teaching power of Thy Church, to the nurture 
of Thy children, the increase of Thy Kingdom and the glory of Thy Son, Jesus Christ our 
Lord. Amen. 

DIOCESAN MISSIONARIES 
O Lord and Heavenly Father, without whom we can do no good thing, but with whose 



help even Thy little ones go forth as the mighty, we beseech Thee to prosper the work of 
all Thy missionaries, wherever they may be (and especially the work of Thy servant . . . .) 
Grant them the wisdom to know and the strength to do Thy will, and bless them with 
the hope and consolation of Thy heavenly promises, for the sake of Thy Son, Our Saviour, 
Jesus Christ. Amen. 

COLLEGE WORK AND CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES 
We pray, O Lord, for guidance as we search for laborers for Thy harvest. May we 
remember that whatever our calling, it may be directed to Thee. Bless teachers, students, 
and chaplains at all institutions of learning. Open our eyes thay we may find and encourage 
the right young men and women for full time church work. In Jesus' name. Amen. 

THE CHURCH PERIODICAL CLUB 
O Lord Jesus Christ, Who art the Light of the World, pour out, we beseech Thee, upon all 
Thy servants Thy Holy Spirit of Wisdom and understanding that they may know the hope 
of Thy calling, the riches of Thine inheritance in the saints, and the greatness of Thy 
power to us who believe. More especially we pray Thee to direct and prosper the Church 
Periodical Club that in all its prayer and labor it may be enabled to make the light of Thy 
glory shine forth in the dark places of the earth. And do Thou of Thy mercy and grace 
establish Thy Church in the truth of Thy Gospel, who livest and reignest with the Father 
and the Holy Spirit ever One God, world without end. Amen. 

USE BEFORE AND AT THE TIME OF THE ELECTION OF OFFICERS 
O Holy Spirit, Whose guidance and inspiration alone can enable us to fulfill the Will of 
God, teach us, we pray Thee, the dignity of our work as churchwomen, and give us grace 
to choose as our leaders those whom Thou dost call to Thy faithful service. To those so chosen 
give a spirit of reverence in the exercise of their office, and to all of us a deep sense of our 
obligation in the discharge of every duty, to do all to the glory of God through Jesus Christ 
our Lord. Amen. 

BENEDICTION 
May the blessings of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, rest 
upon us and upon all work and worship done in His name. May He give us light to guide 
us, courage to support us, and love to unite us, now and forevermore. Amen. 

SERVICE FOR INSTALLATION OF OFFICERS 
For Branch Use 

The Officers and Board shall advance to the Altar rail, then the President shall say: 

Reverend Sir, on behalf of the women of Church, I present to you the 

Officers of the Episcopal Churchwomen of this parish. 

RECTOR: Let us pray. 

Blessed Spirit of God, come to these Thy servants in all Thy fullness and power. 
Compass their minds with wisdom. Fire their wills with Thy might. Melt their hearts 
with Thy love. Through Thy grace make them wholly Thine until they are lost in Thee; 
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Will you accept the responsibilities placed upon you, and endeavor to discharge the 
duties of leadership to the best of your ability? 

OFFICERS: We will. 

RECTOR: Will you, through private prayer, Bible study, and regular attendance at the 
Holy Communion, seek to grow in knowledge of God and His purpose for you, and for 
the world? 

OFFICERS: We will. 

RECTOR: Will you strive by word and deed for the advancement of God's kingdom in 
this parish and beyond? 

OFFICERS: We will. 

RECTOR: Let us pray: 

Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, visit, we pray Thee, these officers of the Episcopal Church- 
women with Thy love. Enlighten their minds more and more with the light of the Gospel so 
that they may walk before Thee in humility, yet with a high sense of the great privilege 
of their responsibility. Save them from complacency and fear of new ways; and give them 
selflessness — patience — courage — gentleness — thankfulness — humor — faithfulness — en- 



thusiasm — wisdom. So, as they daily present themselves to Thee for renewal, may they be 
even stronger channels of Thy grace, and instruments of Thy will in the spiritual life of the 
Diocese. Amen. 

The Blessing of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, be upon you 
and remain with you for ever. Amen. 

SERVICE OF INSTALLATION OF 
OFFICERS FOR THE EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 

Let those who have been elected stand before the Bishop and then let him say: 
It is right and fitting that those who have been duly elected as Officers of the Episcopal 
Churchwomen, Diocese of North Carolina, should be formally received and admitted into 
their respective offices in your presence; and that we should ask the blessings of God upon 
them for their support and guidance in the performance of the duties which you have 
laid upon them. 

O Lord, save these Thy servants, 
Who put their trust in Thee, 
Send them help from the holy place, 
And evermore mightily defend them, 
O Lord, hear our prayer. 
And let our cry come unto Thee. 
Let us pray. 
Our Father . . . 

Direct us, O Lord, in all our doings, with Thy most gracious favour, and further us 
with Thy continual help; that in all our works begun, continued and ended in Thee, we may 
glorify Thy holy name, and finally by Thy mercy, obtain everlasting life; through Jesus 
Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Almighty God, the giver of all good gifts; give Thy Grace, we humbly beseech Thee, 
to these Thy servants who have been chosen to serve Thee in the special work for which 
they have been selected; grant unto them zeal and earnestness in the performance of their 
office; wisdom and strength to meet each day their task; and love in the doing of it; and 
give them vision to see their opportunities for service, to the glory of Thy great name and 
the benefit of Thy Holy Church, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Bless us, O God, with the vision of Thy Being and Thy Beauty, that in the strength 
of it we may work without haste and without rest; through Jesus Christ our Lord. 

I receive and admit you to the office of Be faithful, zealous, sincere 

and humble in all your tasks, and may the Grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of 
God our Father and the guiding fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you evermore. Amen. 

BENEDICTION 
The Father, Son and Holy Ghost bless, preserve and keep you, in your work, in your 
worship, this day and always, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 



THE PRESIDENT'S ADDRESS 
Annual Meeting, 1975 



One morning last fall, during our Churchwomen's Seminar at Quail Roost, we were 
startled into consciousness when the Rev. James Abbott began his morning invocation with — 
"You've done it again, God; another beautiful, new day." To paraphrase Mr. Abbott — 
you've done it again, ladies; another beautiful year: a year filled with enthusiasm, joy 
and hope. 

Your enthusiastic support has been a joy to behold. Again you have visibly responded 
to the work of the Episcopal Churchwomen by contributing over $93,000.00 in this year 
of recession. You have done this by meeting our 1974 budget of $21,000.00, by giving 
$29,775.41 to the United Thank Offering, by contributing $1,365.49 to the Church Periodical 
Club, and over $40,000.00 through special funds, offerings, and the earnings from your 
projects. We know this is only the reported giving handled through our Diocesan Treasurer 
and that far more is dispersed in your local branch and community. 

Your board was pleased and excited about the enthusiastic support given to the new 
concept of the Seminar at Quail Roost. By encouraging commuters from near-by areas we 
were able to swell our number to 70 participants. For those who were able to attend, the 
three days proved a rewarding, spirit filled adventure. We are planning another seminar 
at Quail Roost this fall under the leadership of the Rev. Frank Vest and the Rev. James 
Abbott. Complete information is in your packet. I urge you to put this event on your 
calendars when you return home and plan to attend. 

You have continued to support our Retreat. Although the number was not at capacity 
this year, due to last minute cancellations brought on by the flu epidemic, it was a meaning- 
full occasion for all who participated. 

A great deal of time and energy was put into the convocation Spring Workshops by 
your diocesan officers. The response and the excellent attendance in each convocation was 
heartwarming to us and we thank you for your support. 

When I reported to you at the last Annual Meeting, I spoke of plans for studying our 
budget in greater depth. Following our meeting an Ad Hoc committee was appointed to 
assist the finance committee. This committee was composed of several past presidents and 
others with a sound background in the work of the Episcopal Churchwomen. We met 
several times and carefully reviewed our past budgets and the committee advised us in 
setting some guide lines for future planning. The finance committee worked many hours 
in planning and in doing the investigative work necessary to make the decisions on the 
1976 Budget which will be presented to you tommorow for your adoption. We regret 
that it shows a small decrease in total, rather than an increase, but this is your decision, 
made when you reduce your pledges rather than increase them. 

I also reported to you last year of a concern for our ministry in the area of College 
Work. When this office became vacated by an untimely resignation last winter, I considered 
recommending to this body the removal of this office from our board. However, when 
your diocesan board met, and we thoroughly discussed the issue, they felt college work 
to be vital and that we should continue to serve in this area. Under the leadership of a 
newly elected Secretary of Christian Ministries and College Work we shall persist in a study 
to find new and creative ways to reach our college Youth. 

It is with a real sense of gratitude that I report the addition of six new branches to our 
organization this year and the loss of only one. 

To observe the work of the Episcopal Churchwomen has been most interesting. There 
are almost as many different approaches to the work of the women as there are branches 
participating. I believe this indicates a strong creativity in each group in searching out ways 
to respond in their own areas. The high rate of unemployment in recent months has 
focused on a need for food chains, food banks, clothing closets, and financial aid for the 
purchase of food, fuel, and medicine to which the churchwomen have responded, along 
with their entire parish. Bazaars, fairs, and food and plant sales rate high on the list of 
branch activities. Quiet hours, quiet days, and parish retreats have been held by a number 
of branches. Classes in ceramics, macrame, and other activities for senior citizens are 
meeting a need in several communities. Many groups are involved ecumenically in their 
towns with Congregate Feeding and Meals on Wheels. 



A report blank was sent to every branch in the diocese and your president was asked to 
reflect on the strengths and weaknesses of her group. Many failed to fill in this data, but 
enough did respond to give me some cross section of opinion. These reports under- 
scored a condition that I have been sensitive to for some time. Looking at the diocese as a 
whole, the Churchwomen are strong on projects, but weak in the areas of study and 
spiritual growth. I congratulate you on the good work that is done as the result of your 
projects, but this is not enough. If we believe that our primary goal is "to know the 
Christ and to make Him known" we must give a significant amount of our time to study 
and the nurture of the spirit. It is this side of our life together that can make a difference in 
the kind of ministry we practice. 

The need for moments of silence in our lives is, in my opinion, one of the most needed 
ingredients for an abundant life in this part of the world and in this century. We are awakened 
in the morning by an alarm clock, followed by the news (often bad) on radio or TV. This 
same noise accompanies us at mealtime, and is often interrupted by a ringing telephone. 
We get into our automobiles and the radio is on as the motor starts. We never sit 
quietly in a room where a TV or stereo is present without tuning in. We frequently try to 
read and listen at the same time. And then we wonder why we are a population of 
nervous, up-tight people. 

Haven't we all experienced that special sense of peace that comes in the early hours 
following an immobilizing snow storm — a hush in the night. That sense of quiet in an early 
morning or late evening walk on the beach, especially out of season, or fishing in a quiet, 
still pond. Such experiences reinforce my belief that we should continue to make available 
some training in the art of meditation and reflection. 

It is not enough to know Christ in silence, we need to move out and experience Christ 
in community. The church can take a major role in providing us with the community of 
support and of sharing. This comes as we work together in small groups and in the larger 
act of worshiping together. 

We all know individuals whom we admire and consider to be great Christians. These 
persons have arrived at this state by continued hard work and discipline and through a 
system of priorities. We do not usually develop strong roots of faith overnight. We must 
begin with ourselves if we want to see our churches become strong communities of 
Christians. 

I review the past year with thanksgiving and a sense of joy. My calendar has been 
quite full and there have been harassed and anxious times, but always your support and 
enthusiasm have come through. I look to the future with confidence and hope, knowing 
that the great things you are doing will continue. 

May God's blessing rest on each of you.

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that we, the Episcopal Churchwomen of this Diocese, 
commit ourselves to renewal by personal rededication of our lives to Jesus Christ, and 
by seeking the guidance and the power of the Holy Spirit, that renewal may both be a 
present reality and a continuing priority in our own lives, and in the whole church. 

Resolution No. 2 

WHEREAS, one half of the world's 3.7 billion people are hungry, and 14 to 15 thousand 
people are dying of hunger every single day, and

10

WHEREAS, the mandate from our Lord to all Christians is clear that we are our "brothers' 
keeper" and we are His hands and feet on this earth, and 

WHEREAS, but NOBODY can outdo the Episcopal Churchwomen of the Diocese of 
North Carolina when they set their minds to raising money through bazaars, bridge bene- 
fits, house and garden shows, ABC sales, carnivals, thrift shops, or any other method they 
might seize upon for making money, and 

WHEREAS, the Episcopal Churchwomen of the Diocese of North Carolina should become 
inspired to sacrifice for world hunger by fasting, by declaring beefless and porkless days, 
by substituting with soybeans, lentils, etc., and by otherwise creatively cutting down on 
their consumption of grain, 

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, That this 93rd Annual Meeting go on record as strongly 
encouraging each individual branch of Episcopal Churchwomen to make a definite com- 
mitment for the relief of world hunger locally, nationally, internationally, or any combina- 
tion thereof, over and beyond their regular budgets. 

Resolution No. 3 

WHEREAS the General Convention of the Episcopal Church will meet in 1976; and 

WHEREAS the question of the ordination of women to the priesthood is still unresolved; 
and 

WHEREAS women are responding to a call to serve a community of faith as a vocation; 

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the 1975 Annual Meeting of the Episcopal 
Churchwomen of the Diocese of North Carolina, assembled in Charlotte, affirm the right of 
women to be ordained to the priesthood; and 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the delegates from the Diocese of North Carolina to 
the 1976 General Convention be duly sent a copy of this resolution. 

Resolution No. 4 

Resolved that the 1975 Annual Meeting of the Episcopal Churchwomen endorse any 
responsible revision of the liturgy proposed by the Standing Liturgical Commission. 

Resolutions Nos. 1 and 2 were adopted. 

Resolution No. 3 resulted in a tie vote. The President voted and broke the tie, the final 
vote being 72-71. The motion that the vote count be sent to the Delegates to the 1976 
General Convention with the Resolution was seconded and carried. 

Resolution No. 4 was defeated. 

The President announced that Tree House in Chapel Hill had burned to the ground. 
She read a letter from the Director, Cam Kay, stating that no one was injured and 
temporary lodging had been obtained. An Alms basin was placed in the Narthex of the 
church for any voluntary donations. 

The Rev. John C. Mott responded to the questions on "Renewal" submitted by the 
delegates. 

The Rt. Rev. Thomas A. Fraser addressed the Meeting on "Renewal" and then installed 
the new officers of the Churchwomen of the Diocese. 

Mrs. Alex K. Ball, Chairman of the Courtesy Committee, presented her report. 

Mrs. Flannagan announced that the 1976 Annual meeting will be held at St. Phillip's, 
Durham on April 27-28. 

The Rev. Nicholson B. White, associate Rector of Christ Church, Charlotte, offered 
closing prayers and pronounced the benediction. With the singing of Hymn 489 the Annual 
Meeting was adjourned. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Kathryn F. Alston 
(Mrs. Walter J. Alston, Jr.) 
Secretary

Every detail, being greeted at the door, the arrangements, the delicious meals, including 
lunch on the lawn furnished by St. Martin's, the flower arrangements — every little thing 
you have done has made each of us feel so welcome. 

Special thanks to Rose Flannagan and her committees for the planning and sincere 
appreciation to Bishop William Weinhauer for making this a meeting that we will long 
remember. 

Mrs. Alex K. Ball, Chairman

Episcopal Churchwomen 
Diocese of North Carolina 

We have examined the statement of assets, liabilities and fund balances of Episcopal 
Churchwomen, Diocese of North Carolina, as of December 31, 1974 and the related state- 
ment of changes in fund balances for the year then ended. Our examination was made in 
accordance with generally accepted auditing standards, and accordingly included such tests 
of the accounting records and such other auditing procedures as we considered necessary 
in the circumstances. As to funds received, our examination was limited to recorded receipts. 

In our opinion the accompanying statement of assets, liabilities and fund balances and 
the related statement of changes in fund balances present fairly the financial position of 
Episcopal Churchwomen, Diocese of North Carolina as of December 31, 1974 and the results 
of its operations for the year then ended, in conformity with generally accepted accounting 
principles applied on a basis consistent with that of the preceding year. The current year's 
supplementary data included in Schedule 1 have been subjected to the same auditing pro- 
cedures and, in our opinion, are stated fairly in all material respects when considered 
in conjunction with the basic financial statements as a whole.

ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE 
OF THE EPISCOPAL CHURCH 

The Rt. Rev. John Maury Allin, D.D., Presiding Bishop 

General Convention: The governing body of the Church in the United States. Comprised of 
the House of Bishops and the House of Deputies, clerical and lay. Meets every three years.

vention. 

General Church Program: The schedule of work adopted by General Convention to further 
the Church's Mission. 

Executive Council: The Executive body of the Protestant Episcopal Church which carries

Province: A number of Dioceses and Missionary Districts, adjacently located. There are nine 
provinces in the United States. The Diocese of North Carolina belongs to the Fourth Pro- 
vince, known as the Sewanee Province. The work of the province is educational and pro- 
motional. 

Diocese: A group of parishes and missions under the jurisdiction of a Bishop. The Diocese of 
North Carolina has 60 parishes and 56 missions. See the Constitution and By-Laws in 
this Yearbook for the organization of the Episcopal Churchwomen in this Diocese. 

Convocation: A number of parishes and missions within a given area in a diocese. There 
are five convocations in the Diocese of North Carolina. See the Constitution, Article X, in 
the Yearbook for the organization of the Episcopal Churchwomen in the Convocations in the 
Diocese. 

Parish and Mission: A fellowship of redeemed people doing God's work under the leadership 
and direction of a priest. A parish is self-supporting, whereas a mission receives support 
from the diocese. 

The organization of Episcopal Churchwomen in a parish or mission is known as a Branch 
and is patterned after the Diocesan organization. The membership is composed of com- 
municants who choose to be active members. The structure should be simple and flexible, 
depending on the size, interests, and needs of the group. 

In large parishes the Branch may be divided into smaller groups known as Chapters. The 
Chapters may have officers corresponding to those of the Branch.

EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 



History 

The first organized women's groups within the Church were called "Female Missionary 
Societies," as their purpose was to raise money for the support of missionaries. In 1871 
General Convention recommended that the women of the Church, in every parish and mis- 
sion in the land, be organized under the name of the "Woman's Auxiliary to the Board of 
Missions." This was done in 1872 and for many years the chief function of organized women's 
groups of the Church was to raise money for the support of the missionary work of the Church. 

When the Church reorganized its administration and the National Council was set up in 
1919, it asked that the Woman's Auxiliary, instead of being auxiliary only to the Board of Mis- 
sions, be made "The Woman's Auxiliary to the National Council of the Protestant Episcopal 
Church in the United States of America." This change widened and increased the responsi- 
bilities and opportunities open to the women of the Church. 

In recognition of the fact that women were a part of the Church, not just an auxiliary to it, 
in 1958 National Council created the General Division of Women's Work, the executive body 
on the national level, representing all of the work of all the women of the Church. 

Following this action the Triennial Meeting recommended "Episcopal Churchwomen" as 

the designation for the women of a diocese, and "The Women of Church", as 

the name in the parish. 

The history of women's work in the Diocese of North Carolina dates back to 1881 when the 
Diocese of North Carolina was the whole area of the state. The Rt. Rev. Theodore Lyman, 
Bishop of the Diocese, asked Mrs. John Wilkes of Charlotte to form a Diocesan organization 
of Woman's Auxiliary branches. In 1882 at the Diocesan Convention in Tarboro, representa- 
tives from six branches with a total membership of one hundred were organized as the 
Woman's Auxiliary of the Diocese of North Carolina to the Board of Missions, thereby be- 
coming one of twenty-six organized in the national church prior to 1883. 

In April 1959 at the Annual Meeting in Winston-Salem, a resolution was adopted changing 
the name of the organization to "Episcopal Churchwomen of the Diocese of North Caro- 
lina." It was suggested that, for uniformity, parish branches be known as "Episcopal Church- 
women of Parish".

DEVOTIONAL LIFE 

Mrs. D. James Coleman, Jr., Secretary 
800 Macon Place, Raleigh 27609 

RESPONSIBILITIES AS AN INDIVIDUAL 

1. You will be strengthened in offering help to others by participating fully in the devo- 
tional life of your parish. 

2. Seek to enrich your own spiritual depth by following a Rule of Life, such as daily prayer 
and devotional reading, meditation and Bible study, daily surrender of self to God to be used 
as a channel for His service, and regular rededication to Christ through the Holy Communion. 

3. Build up your own personal devotional library of prayers, books, pamplets, poems, 
hymns and tapes. 

RESPONSIBILITIES AS BRANCH SECRETARY 

You have been assigned a particular sphere of work. You should not let it become separated 
from the work of the others on the Board. All work of the women should be at the direction of 
the Holy Spirit. 

Keep your Board ever mindful of its reason for being, by seeing that worship is an in- 
tegral part of all planning and work. It would be well to allow for a moment of prayer, either 
silent or oral, before taking final action on any matter, in order that each member may seek our 
Lord's will. The few minutes required for this practice could transform a group to being "the 
body of Christ" in a very real sense. 

1. Lead the devotions at the Board meetings or arrange for someone else to do so. 

2. Plan, with the Devotional Life Chairman in each chapter, a devotion related to the study 
program. 

3. Plan Quiet Days, Retreats, Schools of Prayer, Corporate Communions, World Day of 
Prayer observance, the formation of Bible study-prayer groups. 

4. Worship and prayer should be the subject of at least one program during the year. Plan 
this in advance with the program committee. 

5. Attend the Convocational Workshop on Devotional Life. 

6. Cooperate with your rector and secretary of Christian Education in maintaining a track 
rack. 

7. Contact your Diocesan Secretary of Devotional Life for any assistance. 

CHRISTIAN SOCIAL RELATIONS 

Mrs. Kenneth T. Knight, Secretary 
2620 Wells Avenue, Raleigh 27608 

The song, "Soldiers of the Cross" asks us, "If you love Him, why not serve Him?" 
Christian Social Relations — our service to God is an "outward and visible sign of an inward 
and spiritual grace." If we know we are His and He is ours, we will not be satisfied if we 



28 



are not serving Him. We will be constantly seeking His purpose for our lives and acting 
accordingly. This necessitates listening for and being open to His direction. 

There is need everywhere. Everywhere we see and hear about the poor, the oppressed, 
the burdened, the cast down, and the hungry. Everywhere people are lonely and sick in 
body, mind, and spirit. We have but to tune in to their needs, and be ready to accept 
God's leadership as to how we can best serve our brothers and ultimately Him. One thing 
we can be certain of, if we are serving God in the right way, it will be fun. If we will only 
let Him, He will guide us in paths of service that will utilize our talents and alleviate the 
needs around us at the same time. Service should never be a drudgery. It should always 
be a joy; if it is not, there is something basically lacking in our relationship with God. 

The duty of the Christian Social Relations secretary in each branch is twofold. On the one 
hand, she should point out the needs in the church, community, diocese, and world that cry 
out for the Christian's help. On the other hand, she should be in close touch with the 
members of her own branch. She should know each one as well as possible, what her talents 
are, and where she might serve most happily, and suggest areas of service if a churchwoman 
seems to need direction. 

In the past, Episcopal Churchwomen have spoken to countless needs, they should contin- 
ue to do so. Keep on raising money through your bazaars, bridge benefits, carnivals, A. B.C. 
sales, etc., for world hunger — one half of the world's 3.7 billion people are hungry. Keep on 
visiting the lonely in prisons, rest homes, half-way houses, and rehabilitation homes, and 
the mentally and physically ill. Keep on caring for the mentally retarded, alcoholics, 
migrants, drug addicts, lepers, and foreigners in our midst. Never forget the children at 
Episcopal Child Services, Tree House, and refugees of the world. If the need you tackle is 
more than you can handle by yourselves, team up with other Christian groups, or with your 
local Social Services department, Community Action Agency, Salvation Army or the like. 
Churchwomen United is an ecumenical group that is active in many, many communities. 
Their programs are meaningful and far-reaching. Keep in close touch with your legislators, 
push them to vote for measures that will benefit mankind. 

Please call on me if I can help you in planning your CSR program. I have many addresses 
of places you can send money, clothing, blankets, stamps, and other expressions of your love. 
I have many brochures that outline the work of organizations such as CROP, Laubach 
Literacy, Christian Children's Fund, etc. Remember always as you serve that, "Inasmuch 
as ye have done it unto one of the least of these, my brethren, ye have done it unto me." 



MISSIONS 

Mrs. Ralston F. Welch, Secretary 
321 Ardmore Drive, High Point 27262 

The purpose of this office is to encourage churchwomen to participate in the world- 
wide mission of the Church. 

Information and suggestions to help attain this purpose follow. 

1. Pray daily for the world-wide mission of the Church. Use the prayer manual 
RESPONSE, a devotional guide, including Bible readings, commentary, and information 
from each area remembered in the daily intercessions. Order from Forward Movement 
Publications, 412 Sycamore St., Cincinnati, Ohio 45202. $1.50 per year. 

2. A good policy is to divide the Branch budget 50% inside the parish and 50% outside. 
Give to missions through your Diocesan pledge. This will enable the churchwomen on the 
Diocesan level to accept larger priority projects, thereby accomplishing more in a given area. 
Suggested projects will be sent upon request. 

3. Remember especially the missionaries from the Diocese of North Carolina. Pray for 
them by name and write to them periodically. Participate in the Missionary Christmas 
Gift for both active and retired missionaries from this diocese. The total money collected is 
divided equally among them. Please see that the check is made payable to Mrs. Ralston 
F. Welch, Secretary (see above address) and mailed to her by NOVEMBER 15. 

4. By action of the 1975 Annual Meeting the 1976 Epiphany offering will go to The Rt. Rev. 
Philip Ridsdale of Boga-Zaire (formerly Belgian Congo) The Epiphany offering will surely be 
used to the best advantage of all concerned. Please encourage your chapter to seriously 



29 



consider participating in this offering. Send this offering to the Diocesan treasurer, her 
address is listed earlier in this handbook. 

5. Many chapters have expressed interest in assigning a specific missionary to each 
convocation. The purpose is to concentrate their monies, prayers etc. on one or two people 
and become more closely involved with them. 

Below are the 1975-1976 assignments. You will see all but the smallest convocation have 
two names. One is an active missionary and one retired. 
NORTHEAST— Jocelyn Gordon, Rt. Rev. W. J. Gordon 
CENTRAL— Rev. Mark Boesser, Miss Rachel Wolff 
NORTHWEST — Sister Adelaide, Mrs. Harvey Simmonds 
SOUTHWEST — Rev. James Fortune, Mrs. Henry Chapman 
SANDHILLS— Rev. Richard Draper 

6. Remember that mission begins at home and extends throughout the world. Christian 
Social Relations, United Thank Offering, Church Periodical Club, College Work, and 
Missions are inseparable in that each offers opportunities for mission and ministry to 
people. Every churchwoman can participate. Please do your part to make this a successful 
year.

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

Mrs. Charles Aycock McLendon 
2318 Kirkpatrick Place, Greensboro, N. C. 27408 

"And the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the Spirit of Wisdom and Understand- 
ing, the Spirit of Counsel and Might, the Spirit of Knowledge and the fear of the Lord." 
This moving passage from Isaiah 11:2 applies not only at Confirmation, but to us as concerned 
leaders in Christian Education as we venture into the basic interests and needs of our lives 
as well as of others in the world today. There are many sources for what wisdom we need and 
we should explore them in many ways. Attendance at the Spring Workshops will have pro- 
vided many of us with ideas for study, books to order and to consider, and suggestions from 
other branches for successful programs. Just the idea of congenial fellowship among 
Episcopal women at this time of meditation and communion can be inspiring for our 
future experience. If I or any of the Diocesan officers can provide you with any help with 
themes on Missions, Christian Social Relations, etc., please don't hesitate to call on us. 
Participation in the Annual Conference whether at Kanuga or the Seminar at Quail Roost 
in Durham, N. C. is also recommended because new ideas and formats are often generated 
here. This opportunity for learning and relaxing in a beautiful setting can be invaluable. 

A theme for your new year may be developed in many ways and we should remember 
that books are not our sole resource — people, communities, multi-media, church and learn- 
ing institutions are also at our fingertips when we look for ways to present some facet of 
Christian Education. It is also important to remember that programs need not be a static 
experience each year — they can be varied as women are varied and presented in different 
ways by the individual speaker or by panel discussion, by them teaching (perhaps by one 
Branch member and one outsider from the community) or by round robin contributions. 
Once you have selected your program topic, spend some time planning an unusual form 
of presentation. 

Keep in touch with new books and new ideas by reading faithfully your copies of THE 
EPISCOPALIAN, THE LIVING CHURCH, and THE CHURCHMAN. When you go to 
Kanuga, Quail Roost, Richmond or Atlanta remember to browse in the appropriate book- 
stores for new publications. Just don't neglect taking a reading of what your women really 
need and want — some may want to make in-depth studies of certain books of the Bible 
once again or an understanding of charismatic movements; some may want Episcopal 
Church history and the current trends of today. Circulate not only in bookstores and 
libraries but among your women, to know them and find direction for what we all need in 
furthering our concern for others — hopefully in renewing our commitment together in faith 
and love of God and his son Jesus Christ! 

I would like to alert you to certain authors of religious prose and poetry; some con- 
temporary, others familiar and classic for your inspiration and enjoyment!

THE UNITED THANK OFFERING 

Mrs. Tvndall P. Harris 
Rt. 1, Box 152, Pittsboro 27312 

The United Thank Offering began in 1886 as the United Offering with a Triennial 
Collection of $82.71. Through the years the purpose of the U.T.O. has remained constant, 
"Given in thankfulness for the everyday blessings of life — used to provide blessings for 
others." The Offering has grown until the grants in 1974 totaled $1,354, 283.35. 

THE RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE U.T.O. TREASURER 

PARISH 

1) To be thoroughly informed about the purposes and pleasures of participation in the 
United Thank Offering, use your blue box and the U.T.O. prayer daily, and provide informa- 
tion concerning the grants made each year. 

2) Ask your branch Christian Education Secretary to save at least one program a year for the 
U.T.O. Use posters, film strips, plays, panel discussions, speakers, or any innovative and 
informative approach to publicize the United Thank Offering. Your Convocation Treasurer 
has two new film strips for use in the branches. 

3) Attend the Workshop in the Spring to learn new ideas and share your successes with 
others. 

4) At least six weeks before the Ingathering order from Seabury Bookstore (815 Second 
Avenue, New York, New York 10017) sufficient blue boxes, envelopes, grant lists and 
prayer cards for each woman in your parish. (Remember - no money is ever taken out 
of the offering for expenses). Any expense must be borne by your branch. 

5) Arrange with your Rector for the Spring and Fall Ingatherings (on or near the Feast of 
the Annunciation and St. Luke's Day); maybe the Rector will preach a sermon on the subject 
the Sunday before. Be sure to give the minister a copy of the U.T.O. prayer to use at the 
Ingathering. Ask your Rector to let the ladies take up the offering and ask a sufficient 
number to do this at the service. 

6) Collect and count the offering. Three weeks after the Ingathering send one check to your 
Convocation Treasurer along with a record of the number of envelopes sent out, number re- 
turned, and approximate number attending the service. 

7) Arrange with Diocesan U.T.O. Treasurer to use U.T.O. Alms Basin if your branch would 
like it. 

CONVOCATION 

To keep accurate records of the offerings and participation of each branch; to send a copy 
to the Diocesan U.T.O. Treasurer along with one check covering total within one month of 
the Ingathering. (You may have to send another check if there are some late offerings). 
To mail film strips upon request to the branches in your convocation. 

DIOCESAN 

1) To be available to Branches to help them learn more about the United Thank Offering, 
to attend all board meetings, conduct workshops, keep in touch with provincial and 
national representatives to acquire needed information. 

2) To receive the Ingathering monies from the Convocations and to send one check to the 
National Treasurer; to keep accurate records of each church; to send an annual financial 
report to the E.C.W. Treasurer and general reports for the annual meeting, yearbook, and 
N. C. Churchman. To send spring and fall letters to all branches with news, reminders 
and information concerning the approaching Ingatherings, and to answer all corres- 
pondence promptly. 

3) To arrange for representatives of the different convocations to take up the Diocesan 
Ingathering Offering during the Holy Communion service at our Annual Meeting, and to 
see that the Celebrant has a copy of the U.T.O. prayer. 

4) To take care of the U.T.O. Alms Basin and to lend it to any church requesting it.

CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES AND COLLEGE WORK 

Mrs. John Hobart 
1009 Chestnut Drive, Smithfield 27577 



PROMOTION 

Mrs. Melvin Lewis Finch, Jr. 
2110 St. Mary's Street, Raleigh 27608 

The essential duty of the Diocesan Promotion Secretary is to promote the ideas and 
activities of the Episcopal Churchwomen. It is her duty to keep all churchwomen informed 
of things to come and to report on noteworthy activities which have taken place. She is 
available to assist branch officers in promoting individual programs as well as diocesan 
sponsored ones. The effectiveness of this job depends somewhat on her being informed 
by local churchwomen about their endeavors. 

The Episcopal Churchwomen of North Carolina is a very vital organization offering many 
opportunities for spiritual growth to all its members and prospective members. Communi- 
cating this message is the task of all, but particularly the task of promotional workers. 
In keeping with this, the following suggestions are offered: 

1. Convocation Chairmen and Branch Presidents should be certain that someone is 
responsible for the work of informing the other members of what is going on in their organi- 
zations. 

2. Make effective use of your church bulletins and/or newsletters to inform members 
about coming events and activities. 

3. Assist other branch officers with your ideas and imagination in promoting the ECW 
and in promoting their respective programs. 

4. Establish a good relationship with your local press and solicit their aid in promoting 
your work. 

5. Inform other women in the diocese of any activities or projects which you feel are out- 
standing by reporting them in the North Carolina Churchman. 

6. Contact your diocesan secretary for any assistance she may be able to give you in 
carrying out the above suggestions. 



ALTAR WORK AND SERVICE OF EXCHANGE 

Mrs. Julius Crowell, Chairman 
311 Juanita Avenue, Hamlet 28345 

Altar Work is rewarding and meaningful service in all of its phases. Anything done in 
God's service and to His Glory should be performed with love and to the best of our 
ability. Parishes have different needs and customs. No attempt will be made to standardize. 
The object is to increase the efficiency and devotion of each Guild in carrying out the 
wishes of the Rector. Our Lord accepted the ministry of faithful women during His earthly 
life. We pray that He accept and bless the work which our Guilds undertake in the care of their 
Sanctuaries. 

In the individual branches the Altar Guild Chairman is not always an officer of the 
ECW. In fact, there may not be a specific person to whom these responsibilities would be 
delegated. In such cases, I would appreciate those having access to this hand book assuring 
that the proper person, Rector or Altar Guild Chairman be given this information, so 
they may avail themselves of the services of this office. I encourage your correspondence 
on any help needed. 

This office will provide help in: 

1. Setting up procedures for Altar work. 



33 



2. Teaching the skills necessary for maintaining a Sacristy, and preparing for various 
Services of Worship. 

3. Specific hints and helps for the various housekeeping problems which arise. 

4. Encouraging more ladies to participate in the activities of the Guild, and those in the 
Guild to refresh their enthusiasm for their work. 

5. Suggestions for services which the Guilds may provide other than the traditional 
housekeeping duties. 

6. In circulating items not currently in use by one Parish to a Parish or Mission where 
there is a need. 

7. In obtaining printed aids such as books, catalogues for Altar needs. 

ALTAR GUILD PRAYERS 

For use before work: 

Almighty God, grant we beseech Thee, that we may handle Holy things with reverence, 
and perform our work with such faithfulness and devotion, that it may rise with acceptance 
before Thee and obtain Thy blessing; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

For use after work: 

O God, bless and accept the work of my hands and all who minister to Thee in the 
care and adornment of Thy Sanctuary. Bless and hallow them who love the beauty of Thy 
House, that Thy Holy Name may be glorified; through Jesus Christ, Our Lord. Amen.

CHURCH PERIODICAL CLUB 

Mrs. George B. S. Hale 

2008 Rangecrest Drive 

Raleigh 27612 

The Church Periodical Club, serving the ministry of the printed word since 1888, is the 
only organization in the Episcopal Church devoted solely to supplying free printed material 
to those who cannot otherwise obtain it. Its steadily expanding, adaptable program is unique 
among the churches in giving free materials to responsible recipients they themselves 
specify. It is supported by contributions and most of its work is done by volunteers. 

CPC functions on all levels, nationally, world-wide, locally — in parishes, communities, 
dioceses. Religious, educational, technical, recreational books, magazines, leaflets are pro- 



34 



vided for the most remote places and for nearest neighbors. Needs that exceed local 
resources are referred to National Books Fund. 

This fund is directed by a committee of experienced volunteers, meeting to evaluate 
each request. Most are granted as far as funds permit. National Books Fund projects have 
financed a translation on the Prayer Book in Malay to giving medical journals to the 
stations served by the S. S. Hope. 

How can CPC become alive in your Parish? 

1. Pray for the work of CPC for guidance asking God to direct you in spreading the 
Good News with the printed word. 

2. Plan to publicize the work of CPC to all men, women and children in your parish by 
observing the first Sunday in October. (CPC Sunday) 

3. Plan to educate your parish on CPC Sunday in the importance of continuing to 
supply printed materials to people around the world. 

4. Use your parish bulletin and meetings in your parish to remind them of CPC Sunday in 
October. Use the CPC prayers at all services and meetings that week in your parish. 

In our diocese, the CPC work is done through the Episcopal Churchwomen, 
headed by a diocesan Director of CPC and carried out by CPC secretaries in the branches. 
The Secretary of Missions could also serve as CPC Secretary in those churches of small 
membership. 

NOTES: 

All contributions should be sent to the Diocesan Director of CPC. All contributions should 
be made by check payable to Church Periodical Club. Do not remit to the Diocesan Treasurer. 
Enclose a memo showing the source so proper credit can be given. 

When your branch or parish sends a check to the National Books Fund as a memorial 
or as a gift to a Seminarian, the CPC secretary should so inform the recipient of the memorial 
or gift.

Message for the Episcopal Churchwomen's Yearbook — 1976-77 

from the Right Reverend Thomas A. Fraser 

Bishop of the Diocese of North Carolina 



The Episcopal Churchwomen of the Diocese of North Carolina show many signs of strength- 
ening their leadership and their organization and their contribution to the life of the Church 
in this Diocese. I am personally grateful for the progress that the Churchwomen are making and 
the steps they are taking to stay related not only to the place of women but to the place of the 
Church in the world. 

I strongly urge all women of the Diocese to support the ECW and I hope that the rectors and 
vicars of the various congregations will give to the officers of their ECW support and en- 
couragement. 

Faithfully, Your Bishop 



PRAYERS 



RENEWAL 
Almighty God, by whose Holy Spirit your children are led to acknowledge Jesus Christ 
as Lord and Savior; grant that this same Spirit may so dwell in us that we may be daily 
renewed, and manifest in our lives the Love that reaches out in blessing to all people. 
Empower us to help build up your Kingdom on earth to your honor and glory. We ask this, 
gracious Father, in the name of your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

GUIDANCE 
Direct us, O Lord, in all our doings, with Thy most gracious favor and further us with 
Thy continual help; that in all our works begun, continued and ended in Thee, we may 
glorify Thy Holy Name, and finally, by Thy mercy, obtain everlasting life; through Jesus 
Christ our Lord. Amen. 

EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 

Almighty God, our heavenly Father, bless we pray Thee, our work for the extension 
of Thy Kingdom, and make us so thankful for the precious gift to us of Thy beloved Son, 
that we may pray fervently, labor diligently, and give liberally to make Him known to 
all nations as their Saviour and their King through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Almighty God, whose love reacheth unto the world's end, and who didst send Thy 
blessed Son to redeem all mankind, help us, we pray Thee, so to reveal Thy love in prayer 
and work and stewardship, that by Thy spirit all nations and people may be baptized into 
one body, even as all are redeemed by one Saviour; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

MISSIONS 
Almighty God, help us we pray Thee, to shed abroad the light of Thy church in all the 
world. Give us greater zeal for Thy Kingdom, that we may offer abundantly our prayers, 
our work, and our gifts; so that the earth may be filled with the knowledge of Thy glory, 
as the waters cover the sea, through Thy Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

CHRISTIAN SOCIAL RELATIONS 
Send us, O God, as Thy messengers to hearts without a home, to lives without love, to 
the crowds without a guide. Send us to the children whom none have blessed, to the 
famished whom none have visited, to the fallen whom none have lifted, to the bereaved 
whom none have comforted. Kindle Thy flame on the altars of our hearts, that others 
may be warmed thereby; causing Thy light to shine in our souls, that others may see the 
way; keep our sympathies and insight ready, our wills keen, our hands quick to help our 
brothers in their need; for Christ's sake. Amen. 

UNITED THANK OFFERING 

O God, who art the hope of all peoples everywhere, we thank Thee for the outpourings 
of love and generosity which have enabled us to respond to some of the world's needs in 
places far and near; guide us as we face changing times and new frontiers; keep our hearts 
thankful and our vision clear as we' work to fulfill our vocation and ministry as members 
of the body of thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Accept, O Father, this joyful sacrifice of thanksgiving and praise, and bless these gifts 
to the setting forward of Thy Kingdom; that as we have gratefully received the benefits 
Thy bounty has bestowed, so we may cheerfully share them with Thy children in all the 
world; for His sake whose life and death and rising to life again were a song of praise to 
Thee, O Thou Most Holy, our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen. 

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 
O God, who has sent Thy beloved Son to be unto us the Way, the Truth and the Life; grant 
that we, looking unto Him may set forward the teaching power of Thy Church, to the nurture 
of Thy children, the increase of Thy Kingdom and the glory of Thy Son, Jesus Christ our 
Lord. Amen. 

DIOCESAN MISSIONARIES 
O Lord and Heavenly Father, without whom we can do no good thing, but with whose 



help even Thy little ones go forth as the mighty, we beseech Thee to prosper the work of 
all Thy missionaries, wherever they may be (and especially the work of Thy servant . . . .) 
Grant them the wisdom to know and the strength to do Thy will, and bless them with 
the hope and consolation of Thy heavenly promises, for the sake of Thy Son, Our Saviour, 
Jesus Christ. Amen. 

COLLEGE WORK AND CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES 
We pray, O Lord, for guidance as we search for laborers for Thy harvest. May we 
remember that whatever our calling, it may be directed to Thee. Bless teachers, students, 
and chaplains at all institutions of learning. Open our eyes that we may find and encourage 
the right young men and women for full time church work. In Jesus' name. Amen. 

THE CHURCH PERIODICAL CLUB 
O Lord Jesus Christ, Who art the Light of the World, pour out, we beseech Thee, upon all 
Thy servants Thy Holy Spirit of Wisdom and understanding that they may know the hope 
of Thy calling, the riches of Thine inheritance in the saints, and the greatness of Thy 
power to us who believe. More especially we pray Thee to direct and prosper the Church 
Periodical Club that in all its prayer and labor it may be enabled to make the light of Thy 
glory shine forth in the dark places of the earth. And do Thou of Thy mercy and grace 
establish Thy Church in the truth of Thy Gospel, who livest and reignest with the Father 
and the Holy Spirit ever One God, world without end. Amen. 

USE BEFORE AND AT THE TIME OF THE ELECTION OF OFFICERS 
O Holy Spirit, Whose guidance and inspiration alone can enable us to fulfill the Will of 
God, teach us, we pray Thee, the dignity of our work as churchwomen, and give us grace 
to choose as our leaders those whom Thou dost call to Thy faithful service. To those so chosen 
give a spirit of reverence in the exercise of their office, and to all of us a deep sense of our 
obligation in the discharge of every duty, to do all to the glory of God through Jesus Christ 
our Lord. Amen. 

BENEDICTION 
May the blessings of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, rest 
upon us and upon all work and worship done in His name. May He give us light to guide 
us, courage to support us, and love to unite us, now and forevermore. Amen. 

SERVICE FOR INSTALLATION OF OFFICERS 
For Branch Use 

The Officers and Board shall advance to the Altar rail, then the President shall say: 

Reverend Sir, on behalf of the women of Church, I present to you the 

Officers of the Episcopal Churchwomen of this parish. 

RECTOR: Let us pray. 

Blessed Spirit of God, come to these Thy servants in all Thy fullness and power. 
Compass their minds with wisdom. Fire their wills with Thy might. Melt their hearts 
with Thy love. Through Thy grace make them wholly Thine until they are lost in Thee; 
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Will you accept the responsibilities placed upon you, and endeavor to discharge the 
duties of leadership to the best of your ability? 

OFFICERS: We will. 

RECTOR: Will you, through private prayer, Bible study, and regular attendance at the 
Holy Communion, seek to grow in knowledge of God and His purpose for you, and for 
the world? 

OFFICERS: We will. 

RECTOR: Will you strive by word and deed for the advancement of God's kingdom in 
this parish and beyond? 

OFFICERS: We will. 

RECTOR: Let us pray: 

Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, visit, we pray Thee, these officers of the Episcopal Church- 
women with Thy love. Enlighten their minds more and more with the light of the Gospel so 
that they may walk before Thee in humility, yet with a high sense of the great privilege 
of their responsibility. Save them from complacency and fear of new ways; and give them 
selflessness — patience — courage — gentleness — thankfulness — humor — faithfulness — en- 



thusiasm — wisdom. So, as they daily present themselves to Thee for renewal, may they be 
even stronger channels of Thy grace, and instruments of Thy will in the spiritual life of the 
Diocese. Amen. 

The Blessings of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, be upon you 
and remain with you for ever. Amen. 

SERVICE OF INSTALLATION OF 
OFFICERS FOR THE EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 

Let those who have been elected stand before the Bishop and then let him say: 
It is right and fitting that those who have been duly elected as Officers of the Episcopal 
Churchwomen, Diocese of North Carolina, should be formally received and admitted into 
their respective offices in your presence; and that we should ask the blessings of God upon 
them for their support and guidance in the performance of the duties which you have 
laid upon them. 

O Lord, save these Thy servants, 
Who put their trust in Thee, 
Send them help from the holy place, 
And evermore mightily defend them, 
O Lord, hear our prayer. 
And let our cry come unto Thee. 
Let us pray. 
Our Father . . . 

Direct us, O Lord, in all our doings, with Thy most gracious favour, and further us 
with Thy continual help; that in all our works begun, continued and ended in Thee, we may 
glorify Thy holy name, and finally by Thy mercy, obtain everlasting life; through Jesus 
Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Almighty God, the giver of all good gifts; give Thy Grace, we humbly beseech Thee, 
to these Thy servants who have been chosen to serve Thee in the special work for which 
they have been selected; grant unto them zeal and earnestness in the performance of their 
office; wisdom and strength to meet each day their task; and love in the doing of it; and 
give them vision to see their opportunities for service, to the glory of Thy great name and 
the benefit of Thy Holy Church, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Bless us, O God, with the vision of Thy Being and Thy Beauty, that in the strength 
of it we may work without haste and without rest; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

I receive and admit you to the office of Be faithful, zealous, sincere 

and humble in all your tasks, and may the Grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of 
God our Father and the guiding fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you evermore. Amen. 

BENEDICTION 
The Father, Son and Holy Ghost bless, preserve and keep you, in your work, in your 
worship, this day and always, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 



THE PRESIDENT'S ADDRESS 
Annual Meeting, 1976 



Bishop Fraser, Delegates and Guests — 

To be meeting here at St. Philip's for the 94th Annual Meeting of The Episcopal Church- 
women has particular meaning to me. This church has played a significant role in my life with 
the Episcopal Churchwomen. In 1951, being a relatively new "Tar Heel", I attended my first 
Annual Meeting in this parish as a visitor. Eleven years later, at Annual Meeting 1962, it was 
here that I was installed to my first diocesan office as Secretary of Devotional Life. Now I have 
returned for this final meeting as your president. 

There is a saying — "never look back". However, there are times, if we do not dwell in the 
past, that it is helpful to look back in order to clear our perspective for the present and the 
future. In preparing for this meeting I spent some time reading back through my files of old 
yearbooks. These are fairly complete over the past ten years and then hit or miss to some dated 
1914 & 15. In reading through these books the same words of renewal, challenge, inspiration 
and joyful service are expressed. In all these years the message comes through loud and clear 
that our reason for being the Episcopal Churchwomen is our desire to serve Our Lord. 

The theme for this meeting is "Three Faces of Mission". In the next few hours we are to- 
gether we will be hearing addresses and reports that express our mission on world, diocesan 
and parish level. As we listen let us seek a true understanding of the opportunity the Episcopal 
Churchwomen gives us to serve the Lord in a special way. 

As time has dictated a shorter, more compact meeting in recent years, it has been necessary 
to eliminate from our agenda the reports from the Diocesan board members. These reports 
are contained in your packet and I urge you to read them and to circulate them in your branch 
when you return home. It is especially important that they get into the hands of those persons 
responsible for specific areas of work. The success of the Episcopal Churchwomen on Dio- 
cesan level is due to the commitment and hard work of these ladies and I am indeed grateful 
for each of them. 

Four years ago, when I was asked to accept the nomination as President-elect, I was one of 
those skeptics, who questioned the survival of the Churchwomen as an organization. At that 
time we had been through some difficult years in the entire church and during this 
period many of our branches disbanded. The tide has turned and many of those groups who 
disbanded found no satisfactory way to express their ministry. Thanks be to God! They have 
returned with new vigor and vitality to being a part of our diocesan organization. Some ten 
groups have restored their membership over the past three years and we know of three or 
four others seriously considering this action. I also, regretfully, know of some branches who 
are hanging on only by a thread and I know of no easy way to help them, for the motivation 
"to be" must come from within. 

A few highlights from our year — 

Our second Quail Roost Seminar was a huge success. So much so that we feel we must limit 
the number of commuters as well as the residents for the seminar scheduled for October 25th- 
27th to be led by the Rev. C. Fitzsimons Allison, with the Rev. William Wells as chaplain. 

The January retreat held at the Terraces had every bed filled plus several ladies from Penick 
Home who could come in for the sessions. 

Our spring convocation workshops continue to be well received and are meeting a real 
need. However, your board has some concerns about these and will be working on ways to 
improve them. One concern is that there is little opportunity to see the total picture of our 
work. We also feel concern that although some board members have a good attendance at 
their workshop of 12 to 20 persons, there are others having only 1 or 2. We need to tell the 
story of the Episcopal Churchwomen as an interacting program. More inspiration and en- 
thusiasm may come as a result of grouping interests such as Missions and the Church Period- 
ical Club, Devotional Life and Christian Education, Christian Ministries and Christian Social 
Relations, etc. 

Although we are aware that this is a time of inflation, the figures that tell the story of 
stewardship of the Churchwomen are impressive. In 1975 over $118,000 went through the 
hands of the treasurer and other appropriate officers of your diocesan board. 

The United Thank Offering showed an increase of almost $5000 over the figure for 1974. 
The amount of $34,496.10 is one of the highest, if not the highest ever recorded for this Dio- 



cese. The total national grants made by the United Thank Offering last year amounted to over 
1.5 million dollars. We, in this Diocese, are grateful for the $25,000 grant made to Tree House 
in Chapel Hill. 

Our gifts to the Missionary Christmas Fund amounted to $2,213.50. This gave checks of over 
$200 to each of the missionaries affiliated with our Diocese. The letters of thanks received in 
response to these gifts are heartwarming as they tell of how this money was put to work help- 
ing others. 

The Church Periodical Club Offering amounted to $1,452.68. Our budget of $21,000 was 
met and our special giving amounted to $49,779.81. 

Your stewardship speaks for your understanding of the "Three Faces of Mission". 

The word change is also one that runs through the history of the Episcopal Churchwomen. 
It is a good word for it indicates our awareness of the world we live in and our willingness to 
adapt to the requirements of life in 1976, which is totally different from that lived in 1883, 
when the Auxiliary was just beginning in this Diocese. 

A number of changes have been made in the past three years. More will be recommended 
for your adoption tomorrow. As we look to the future we know there will continue to be a 
need for change. 

On leaving office I feel I must make one recommendation. This has come as a result of a great 
deal of thought and the actual experience of serving for three years as president. The life styles 
of this last quarter of the 20th century are putting demands on our lives that must be faced 
realistically. I sincerely recommend a serious, in-depth study of tenure of office for the dio- 
cesan board. Three years is a very long time for the total commitment this work requires. A 
two year term of office would seem more reasonable, and would help us to continue to attract 
more of our younger women, who do have many demands on their time, but who have so 
much to contribute. Change in tenure would lead to change in constitution and could lead 
to change in structure. Many dioceses have moved successfully to the two year term, so my 
recommendation is not unprecedented. 

And so now I come to the end of three years. I am deeply grateful for the privilege that 
has been mine in serving as your president. What has been given to me far outweighs 
the little I have contributed. No words can express my heartfelt thanks for the support and 
devotion of my husband, my family, and all of you over the past three years. St. Paul has some 
beautiful words that speak so well for what I feel in my heart. 

"I thank my God whenever I think of you; and every time I pray for all of you. I pray with 
joy, remembering how you have helped to spread the Good News from the day you first heard 
it right up to the present. I am quite certain that the One who began this good work in you 
will see that it is finished. It is only natural that I should feel like this, since you have shared 
the privileges which have been mine. You have a permanent place in my heart, and God 
knows how much I will miss you. My prayer is that your love for each other may increase 
more and more and never stop improving your knowledge and deepening your perception." 
(Philippians 1:3-10) 

Thank You 

ACCEPTANCE SPEECH, April 28, 1976 

We rejoice that the Episcopal Churchwomen have had the inspired leadership of Rose 
Flannagan for the past three years. It has been a joyful experience for those of us who have been 
privileged to serve on the board with her. We will be ever grateful she put her special talents 
to work in this area of the church. Will you please stand and join me in thanking Rose with love 
for her devotion and her total commitment to us. 

As I have listened to our speakers on "Three Faces of Mission," I am more convinced than 
ever that God does indeed call us all to be his missionaries. For we are first Christians, then we 
are Episcopal Churchwomen. And our mission as both is to reveal the love of Jesus Christ so 
that all people may come to know Him and to live in the light of His presence. 

For us to more freely and fully do the task we have been called by our Lord to do, we must have 
our own daily renewal through study of the Bible and our time to communicate with our Lord 
through prayer and meditation. Otherwise, how will we know what He expects us to do? And 
we must not turn away from this beautiful world God created for us, which today is torn 
asunder by war, injustice, immorality, suffering, and oppression. This is our challenge to 
serve — to relieve the suffering, to care for the poor, to help the disabled, to feed the hungry, 
to support the elderly, to love those who are hard to love. 



One might ask, what are our important reasons for being Episcopal Church women? To know 
our Lord more intimately, to bring others to Him and, being empowered by the Holy Spirit 
to be faithful stewards in serving Him. In planning your work for next year, I would ask you 
to hold fast to the idea that branch meetings should revolve around worship and study and 
only then go forth, renewed, to serve. 

We are living in a fast moving, fast changing world: a fact, of which, we are acutely aware. 
It is often difficult to adjust to the pace and to keep our vision clear and broad. I am reminded 
of the story of the differences betwee the frog and the bird. The frog is content and happy to 
live in his mudhole and never see beyond the edge of the mud. The bird, meanwhile, soars 
freely in the heavens above the overall scheme of life, his vision limited only by the horizon. 
And so as changes take place in the church, let us not be limited to the confines of a mudhole, 
but like the bird, keep our vision broad and clear. 

I look forward to serving as president of the Episcopal Churchwomen with joy, in the 
knowledge that with the grace of God, your love and support, we shall continue to be a living 
and viable branch of the Lord's vine.

Mrs. Herman Salinger, Chairman of the Resolutions Committee, presented the following 
resolution: 

TO CREATE A DIOCESAN COMMITTEE TO STUDY THE FEASIBILITY OF 
ESTABLISHING A CONFERENCE AND CAMP CENTER 

WHEREAS, the greatest care should be taken by the Church to deepen, to extend, and to 
nurture the spiritual life of the young people in our Diocese, and 

WHEREAS, we believe that Christian camp experiences are vital if we are to keep our young 
people involved in the Episcopal Church, and 

WHEREAS, our Diocese lacks conference facilities to answer the growing desire for retreats, 
conferences, and seminars among its laity and clergy, thereby necessitating use of facilities 
in other dioceses or in secular settings, and 

WHEREAS, the Youth Committee has gone on record asking reconsideration of the pos- 
sibility of acquiring a camp and conference center for the Diocese of North Carolina, and 

WHEREAS, the Terraces cannot physically meet the needs for the kind of continuing edu- 
cation programs now sought by the laity and the clergy, and 

WHEREAS, Kanuga Camps and Conference Center is too distant for the people of our 
Diocese to utilize for short-term meetings and is therefore impractical as a truly diocesan 
center, and 

WHEREAS, the Committee on the State of the Church in its report to the 160th Diocesan 
Convention called on the Diocesan Council to make a thorough study of the feasibility of such 
a conference and camp center, therefore, be it 

RESOLVED, that the Episcopal Churchwomen request the Bishop and the Diocesan 
Council to appoint a broad-based Committee, of which two shall be members of the Episcopal 
Churchwomen, and which will be funded up to $500.00 by the Episcopal Churchwomen, to 
make an in-depth study of the feasibility of establishing a conference and camp center for the 
Diocese of North Carolina along with a recommended plan for action, and that this committee 
report to the Diocesan Council at its fall meeting, Wednesday, September 8, 1976. 

This Resolution was adopted. 

A Resolution pertaining to election was referred to the ECW Diocesan Board for further 
study and was not acted on at Annual Meeting. 

Mrs. Gerald Barrett, Treasurer, presented the budget as proposed by the Finance Com- 
mittee. The 1977 budget of $21,000.00 was adopted on motion of the Treasurer. Mrs. Barrett's 
motion that the Intercessory Offering go to St. Mary's High School Library in the Philippines 
was adopted, as was her motion for the disbursement of the $185.69 surplus to the Rev. 
Marvin Perry, Pocos de Caldas, Brazil for Prayer Books. 

Mrs. Barrett, Chairman of the Committee on Constitution and By-Laws, presented the 
recommended change in the Constitution and By-Laws, as follows: 

Change in By-Law Number 3 as follows: 

Each Branch may be represented by the President and two other delegates, (appointed by 
the President or elected by the Branch), each having a vote. A Branch to have voting privileges 
must have paid a pledge to the Diocesan Churchwomen's Budget for the preceding year. The 
motion was seconded and carried by a vote of 77 for and 49 against. 

The Rt. Rev. Thomas A. Fraser addressed the Meeting on "Mission at Parish Level". 

Mrs. William Long, Chairman of the Courtesy Committee, presented her report. A rising 
vote of thanks was given to Mrs. Flannagan for the excellent and inspiring job she has done 
as President during the past three years. 

The Rt. Rev. Thomas A. Fraser installed the new officers of the Churchwomen of the 
Diocese. Mrs. Flannagan presented Mrs. Evans with the Cross and Gavel, symbols of her new 
office as president of the Churchwomen, and Mrs. Evans responded with a speech of ac- 
ceptance. She announced that Annual Meeting 1977 will be held at St. Timothy's Church, 
Wilson. 

The Rev. John W. S. Davis, Rector of Holy Innocents, Henderson, offered closing prayers. 
Bishop Fraser pronounced the benediction. With the singing of Hymn 363, the Annual Meet- 
ing was adjourned. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Kathryn F. Alston 
(Mrs. Walter J. Alston, Jr.) 
Secretary

REPORT OF THE COURTESY COMMITTEE 

Bishop Fraser, Madam President, Delegates and Guests to the 94th Annual Meeting of the 
Episcopal Churchwomen of the Diocese of North Carolina, meeting in St. Philip's Durham: 

The three faces of Mission, as presented to us by the Rev. Samuel Van Culin, are: RE- 
NEWAL, CHALLENGE, and JOYFUL SERVICE. 

These three faces have been abundantly evident in this Annual Meeting — A renewal of our 
commitment as Churchwomen; a challenge to us for our future; and joyful service shown by 
St. Philip's, our host church, St. Stephen's, and the other churches of Durham. On behalf of 
everyone present we would like to express our thanks to these ladies and men. 

No report of this Courtesy Committee would be complete without special thanks to — and 
appreciation of — the three past years of joyful service that Rose Flannagan has given us during 
her term as our President. She has "truly served the Lord in a very special way". 

Respectfully submitted, 

Mrs. C. L. Sweeney, Jr., Chairman 

Mrs. William Long 

Mrs. R. O. Martinelli

CERTIFIED PUBLIC ACCOUNTANTS 

Branch Banking and Trust Company Building 

Post Office Box 1876 

Raleigh, North Carolina 27802 

Episcopal Churchwomen 
Diocese of North Carolina 

We have examined the statement of assets, liabilities and fund balances of Episcopal 
Churchwomen, Diocese of North Carolina, as of December 31, 1975 and the related statement 
of changes in fund balances for the year then ended . Our examination was made in accordance 
with generally accepted auditing standards, and accordingly included such tests of the 
accounting records and such other auditing procedures as we considered necessary in the 
circumstances. As to funds received, our examination was limited to recorded receipts. 

In our opinion the accompanying statement of assets, liabilities and fund balances and the 
related statement of changes in fund balances present fairly the financial position of Episcopal 
Churchwomen, Diocese of North Carolina as of December 31, 1975 and the results of its 
operations for the year then ended, in conformity with generally accepted accounting prin- 
ciples applied on a basis consistent with that of the preceding year. The current year's supple- 
mentary data included in Schedule 1 have been subjected to the same auditing procedures 
and, in our opinion, are stated fairly in all material respects when considered in conjunction 
with the basic financial statements as a whole.

INFORMATION AND INSTRUCTIONS 



23 



ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE 
OF THE EPISCOPAL CHURCH 

The Rt. Rev. John Maury Allin, D.D., Presiding Bishop 

General Convention: The governing body of the Church in the United States. Comprised of 
the House of Bishops and the House of Deputies, clerical and lay. Meets every three years. 

Triennial: The meeting of Episcopal Churchwomen held simultaneously with General Con- 
vention. 

General Church Program: The schedule of work adopted by General Convention to further 
the Church's Mission. 

Executive Council: The Executive body of the Protestant Episcopal Church which carries 
out the Program of the Church between General Conventions. 

Province: A number of Dioceses and Missionary Districts, adjacently located. There are nine 
provinces in the United States. The Diocese of North Carolina belongs to the Fourth Pro- 
vince, known as the Sewanee Province. The work of the province is educational and pro- 
motional. 

Diocese: A group of parishes and missions under the jurisdiction of a Bishop. The Diocese of 
North Carolina has 63 parishes and 48 missions. See the Constitution and By-Laws in 
this Yearbook for the organization of the Episcopal Churchwomen in this Diocese. 

Convocation: A number of parishes and missions within a given area in a diocese. There 
are five convocations in the Diocese of North Carolina. See the Constitution, Article X, in 
the Yearbook for the organization of the Episcopal Churchwomen in the Convocations in the 
Diocese. 

Parish and Mission: A fellowship of redeemed people doing God's work under the leadership 
and direction of a priest. A parish is self-supporting, whereas a mission receives support 
from the diocese. 

The organization of Episcopal Churchwomen in a parish or mission is known as a Branch 
and is patterned after the Diocesan organization. The membership is composed of commu- 
nicants who choose to be active members. The structure should be simple and flexible, de- 
pending on the size, interests, and needs of the group. 

In large parishes the Branch may be divided into smaller groups known as Chapters. The 
Chapters may have officers corresponding to those of the Branch.

EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 
History 

The first organized women's groups within the Church were called "Female Missionary 
Societies," as their purpose was to raise money for the support of missionaries. In 1871 
General Convention recommended that the women of the Church, in every parish and mis- 
sion in the land, be organized under the name of the "Woman's Auxiliary to the Board of 
Missions." This was done in 1872 and for many years the chief function of organized women's 
groups of the Church was to raise money for the support of the missionary work of the Church. 

When the Church reorganized its administration and the National Council was set up in 
1919, it asked that the Woman's Auxiliary, instead of being auxiliary only to the Board of Mis- 
sions, be made "The Woman's Auxiliary to the National Council of the Protestant Episcopal 
Church in the United States of America." This change widened and increased the responsi- 
bilities and opportunities open to the women of the Church. 

In recognition of the fact that women were a part of the Church, not just an auxiliary to it, 
in 1958 National Council created the General Division of Women's Work, the executive body 
on the national level, representing all of the work of all the women of the Church. 

Following this action the Triennial Meeting recommended "Episcopal Churchwomen" as 

the designation for the women of a diocese, and "The Women of Church", as 

the name in the parish. 

The history of women's work in the Diocese of North Carolina dates back to 1881 when the 
Diocese of North Carolina was the whole area of the state. The Rt. Rev. Theodore Lyman, 
Bishop of the Diocese, asked Mrs. John Wilkes of Charlotte to form a Diocesan organization 
of Woman's Auxiliary branches. In 1882 at the Diocesan Convention in Tarboro, representa- 
tives from six branches with a total membership of one hundred were organized as the 
Woman's Auxiliary of the Diocese of North Carolina to the Board of Missions, thereby be- 
coming one of twenty-six organized in the national church prior to 1883. 

In April 1959 at the Annual Meeting in Winston-Salem, a resolution was adopted changing 
the name of the organization to "Episcopal Churchwomen of the Diocese of North Caro- 
lina." It was suggested that, for uniformity, parish branches be known as "Episcopal Church- 
women of Parish".

DEVOTIONAL LIFE

RESPONSIBILITIES AS AN INDIVIDUAL 

1. You will be strengthened in offering help to others by participating fully in the devo- 
tional life of your parish. 

2. Seek to enrich your own spiritual depth by following a Rule of Life, such as daily prayer 
and devotional reading, meditation and Bible study, daily surrender of self to God to be used 
as a channel for His service, and regular rededication to Christ through the Holy Communion. 

3. Build up your own personal devotional library of prayers, books, pamplets, poems, 
hymns and tapes. 

RESPONSIBILITIES AS BRANCH SECRETARY 

You have been assigned a particular sphere of work. You should not let it become separated 
from the work of the others on the Board. All work of the women should be at the direction of 
the Holy Spirit. 

Keep your Board ever mindful of its reason for being, by seeing that worship is an in- 
tegral part of all planning and work. It would be well to allow for a moment of prayer, either 
silent or oral, before taking final action on any matter, in order that each member may seek our 
Lord's will. The few minutes required for this practice could transform a group to being "the 
body of Christ" in a very real sense. 

1. Lead the devotions at the Board meetings or arrange for someone else to do so. 

2. Plan, with the Devotional Life Chairman in each chapter, a devotion related to the study 
program. 

3. Plan Quiet Days, Retreats, Schools of Prayer, Corporate Communions, World Day of 
Prayer observance, the formation of Bible study-prayer groups.

the aged, help the retarded and handicapped, visit the shut-ins in your community and to 
cooperate with Church World Service, CROP, APSO, HOPE, Bread for the World, Presiding

MISSIONS 

Mrs. Ralston F. Welch, Secretary 
321 Ardmore Drive. High Point 27262 

The purpose of this office is to encourage churchwomen to participate in the world- 
wide mission of the Church. 

Information and suggestions to help attain this purpose follow. 

1. Pray daily for the world-wide mission of the Church. Use the prayer manual 
RESPONSE, a devotional guide, including Bible readings, commentary, and information 
from each area remembered in the daily intercessions. Order from Forward Movement 
Publications, 412 Sycamore St., Cincinnati, Ohio 45202. $1.50 per year. 

2. A good policy is to divide the Branch budget 50% inside the parish and 50% outside. 
Give to missions through your Diocesan pledge. This will enable the churchwomen on the 
Diocesan level to accept larger priority projects, thereby accomplishing more in a given area. 
Suggested projects will be sent upon request. 

3. Remember especially the missionaries from the Diocese of North Carolina. Pray for 
them by name and write to them periodically. Participate in the Missionary Christmas 
Gift for both active and retired missionaries from this Diocese. The total money collected is 
divided equally among them. Please see that the check is made payable to Mrs. Ralston 
F. Welch, Secretary (see above address) and mailed to her by NOVEMBER 15. 

4. By action of the 1976 Annual Meeting, the 1977 Epiphany offering will go to St. Mary's 



29 



High School Library in the Philippines to help replace the library which was destroyed 
by fire. Please encourage your chapter to seriously consider participating in this offer- 
ing. Send it to the Diocesan Treasurer. 

5. Many chapters have expressed interest in assigning a specific missionary to each 
convocation. The purpose is to concentrate their monies, prayers etc. on one or two people 
and become more closely involved with them. 

Below are the 1976-1977 assignments. You will see all but the smallest convocation have 
two names. One is an active missionary and one retired. 
NORTHEAST — Jocelyn Gordon, The Rev. Richard Draper 
CENTRAL— The Rev. Mark Boesser, Miss Rachel Wolff 
NORTHWEST — Sister Adelaide, Mrs. Harvey Simmonds 
SOUTHWEST — The Rev. James Fortune, Mrs. Henry Chapman 
SANDHILLS— The Rev. Marvin C. Perry 

6. Remember that mission begins at home and extends throughout the world. Christian 
Social Relations, United Thank Offering, Church Periodical Club, College Work, and 
Missions are inseparable in that each offers opportunities for mission and ministry to 
people. Every churchwoman can participate. Please do your part to make this a successful 
year.

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 



Mrs. Thomas J. Randall 
923 W. Horah Street, Salisbury 28144 

"And the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the Spirit of Wisdom and Understand- 
ing, the Spirit of Counsel and Might, the Spirit of Knowledge and the fear of the Lord." 
This moving passage from Isaiah 11:2 applies not only at Confirmation, but to us as concerned 
leaders in Christian Education as we venture into the basic interests and needs of our lives 
as well as of others in the world today. There are many sources for what wisdom we need and 
we should explore them in many ways. Attendance at the Spring Workshops will have pro- 
vided many of us with ideas for study, books to order and to consider, and suggestions from 
other branches for successful programs. Just the idea of congenial fellowship among 
Episcopal women at this time of meditation and communion can be inspiring for our 
future experience. If I or any of the Diocesan officers can provide you with any help with 
themes on Missions, Christian Social Relations, etc., please don't hesitate to call on us. 
Participation in the Annual Conference whether at Kanuga or the Seminar at Quail Roost 
in Durham, N. C. is also recommended because new ideas and formats are often generated 
here. This opportunity for learning and relaxing in a beautiful setting can be invaluable. 

A theme for your new year may be developed in many ways and we should remember 
that books are not our sole resource — people, communities, multi-media, church and learn- 
ing institutions are also at our fingertips when we look for ways to present some facet of 
Christian Education. It is also important to remember that programs need not be a static 
experience each year — they can be varied as women are varied and presented in different 
ways by the individual speaker or by panel discussion, by them teaching (perhaps by one 
Branch member and one outsider from the community) or by round robin contributions. 
Once you have selected your program topic, spend some time planning an unusual form 
of presentation. 

Keep in touch with new books and new ideas by reading faithfully your copies of The 
Episcopalian, The Living Church, and The Churchman. When you go to Kanuga, 
Quail Roost, Richmond or Atlanta remember to browse in the appropriate bookstores 
for new publications. Just don't neglect taking a reading of what your women really 
need and want — some may want to make in-depth studies of certain books of the Bible 
once again or an understanding of charismatic movements; some may want Episcopal 
Church history and the current trends of today. Circulate not only in bookstores and 
libraries but among your women, to know them and find direction for what we all need in 
furthering our concern for others — hopefully in renewing our commitment together in faith 
and love of God and his son Jesus Christ! 

I would like to alert you to certain authors of religious prose and poetry; some con- 
temporary, others familiar and classic for your inspiration and enjoyment!

CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES AND COLLEGE WORK 

Mrs. John Hobart 
1009 Chestnut Street, Smithfield 27577 

The purpose of this office is to give direction in two areas important to Episcopal Church- 
women. This past year has been spent listening and redefining the task of this office. During 



32 



the next year , it is hoped that many new ideas will come to this section of the Episcopal Church- 
women. Please feel free to call Diocesan Secretary of Christian Ministries and College Work 
with your suggestions. 

CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES 

1. Investigate vocations within the church with emphasis on opportunities for women. 
There are many careers available — Ministries to minority groups, Higher Education, Hospital, 
Recreation, Orders, Chaplaincy, Nurses, Christian Education, Blind, Deaf, Retarded, Na- 
tional Institution for Lay Ministry (Church Army). This information on careers is found in 
Episcopal Church Annual. 

2. Encourage Churchwomen to participate in the Ministry of the Laity. The opportunities 
are different in every church and this office hopes to encourage women to serve in various 
areas such as Vestry persons, Lay Readers, Acolytes, teachers, Visiting Committee Members, 
and Members of Altar Guild. 

3. Express a special interest in Seminary students that go to Seminary from local church. 

COLLEGE WORK 

The college work section of this office seeks to maintain a relationship with Episcopal stu- 
dents. 

1. Students who are away at college — 

a. Keep in touch with students. Make a file on each student and send birthday, Christ- 
mas, and Easter cards, newsletters, etc. 

b. Arrange get-together or honor the students at a regular church occasion such as a 
coffee hour after church service. 

c. Plan a Sunday for college students and use them as acolytes, lay readers and ushers.

speak at Churchwomen's meeting or plan a special church service for the presentation. 



PROMOTION 

Mrs. John M. Cannon 
Rt. 7, Box 243, Raleigh 27609 

The essential duty of the Diocesan Promotion Secretary is to promote the ideas and 
activities of the Episcopal Churchwomen. It is her duty to keep all churchwomen informed 
of things to come and to report on noteworthy activities which have taken place. She is 
available to assist branch officers in promoting individual programs as well as diocesan 
sponsored ones. The effectiveness of this job depends somewhat on her being informed 
by local churchwomen about their endeavors. 

The Episcopal Churchwomen of North Carolina is a very vital organization offering many 
opportunities for spiritual growth to all its members and prospective members. Communi- 
cating this message is the task of all, but particularly the task of promotional workers. 
In keeping with this, the following suggestions are offered: 

1. Convocation Chairmen and Branch Presidents should be certain that someone is 
responsible for the work of informing the other members of what is going on in their organi- 
zations. 

2. Make effective use of your church bulletins and/or newsletters to inform members 
about coming events and activities. 

3. Assist other branch officers with your ideas and imagination in promoting the ECW 
and in promoting their respective programs. 

4. Establish a good relationship with your local press and solicit their aid in promoting 
your work. 



33 



5. Inform other women in the Diocese of any activities or projects which you feel are out- 
standing by reporting them in the North Carolina Churchman. 

6. Contact your Diocesan Secretary for any assistance she may be able to give you in 
carrying out the above suggestions. 



ALTAR WORK AND SERVICE OF EXCHANGE 

Mrs. Julius Crowell, Chairman 
311 Juanita Avenue, Hamlet 28345 

Altar Work is rewarding and meaningful service in all of its phases. Anything done in 
God's service and to His Glory should be performed with love and to the best of our 
ability. Parishes have different needs and customs. No attempt will be made to standardize. 
The object is to increase the efficiency and devotion of each Guild in carrying out the 
wishes of the Rector. Our Lord accepted the ministry of faithful women during His earthly 
life. We pray that He accept and bless the work which our Guilds undertake in the care of their 
Sanctuaries. 

In the individual branches the Altar Guild Chairman is not always an officer of the 
ECW. In fact, there may not be a specific person to whom these responsibilities would be 
delegated. In such cases, I would appreciate those having access to this hand book assuring 
that the proper person, Rector or Altar Guild Chairman be given this information, so 
they may avail themselves of the services of this office. I encourage your correspondence 
on any help needed. 

This office will provide help in: 

1. Setting up procedures for Altar work. 

2. Teaching the skills necessary for maintaining a Sacristy, and preparing for various 
Services of Worship. 

3. Specific hints and helps for the various housekeeping problems which arise. 

4. Encouraging more ladies to participate in the activities of the Guild, and those in the 
Guild to refresh their enthusiasm for their work. 

5. Suggestions for services which the Guilds may provide other than the traditional 
housekeeping duties. 

6. In circulating items not currently in use by one Parish to a Parish or Mission where 
there is a need. 

7. In obtaining printed aids such as books, catalogues for Altar needs. 

ALTAR GUILD PRAYERS 

For use before work: 

Almighty God, grant we beseech Thee, that we may handle Holy things with reverence, 
and perform our work with such faithfulness and devotion, that it may rise with acceptance 
before Thee and obtain Thy blessing; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

For use after work: 

O God, bless and accept the work of my hands and all who minister to Thee in the 
care and adornment of Thy Sanctuary. Bless and hallow them who love the beauty of Thy 
House, that Thy Holy Name may be glorified; through Jesus Christ, Our Lord. Amen.

321 Ardmore Drive, High Point 27262 

The Church Periodical Club, serving the ministry of the printed word since 1888, is the 
only organization in the Episcopal Church devoted solely to supplying free printed material 
to those who cannot otherwise obtain it. Its steadily expanding, adaptable program is unique 
among the churches in giving free materials to responsible recipients they themselves 
specify. It is supported by contributions and most of its work is done by volunteers. 

CPC functions on all levels, nationally, world-wide, locally — in parishes, communities, 
dioceses. Religious, educational, technical, recreational books, magazines, leaflets are pro- 
vided for the most remote places and for nearest neighbors. Needs that exceed local 
resources are referred to National Books Fund. 

This fund is directed by a committee of experienced volunteers, meeting to evaluate 
each request. Most are granted as far as funds permit. National Books Fund projects have 
financed a translation of the Prayer Book in Malay to giving medical journals to the 
stations served by the S. S. Hope. 

How can CPC become alive in your Parish? 

1. Pray for the work of CPC for guidance asking God to direct you in spreading the 
Good News with the printed word. 

2. Plan to publicize the work of CPC to all men, women and children in your parish by 
observing the first Sunday in October. (CPC Sunday) 

3. Plan to educate your parish on CPC Sunday in the importance of continuing to 
supply printed materials to people around the world. 

4. Use your parish bulletin and meetings in your parish to remind them of CPC Sunday in 
October. Use the CPC prayers at all services and meetings that week in your parish. 

In our Diocese, the CPC work is done through the Episcopal Churchwomen, 
headed by a Diocesan Director of CPC and carried out by CPC secretaries in the branches. 
The Secretary of Missions could also serve as CPC Secretary in those churches of small 
membership. 

NOTES: 

All contributions should be sent to the Diocesan Director of CPC. All contributions should 
be made by check payable to Church Periodical Club. Do not remit to the Diocesan Treasurer. 
Enclose a memo showing the source so proper credit can be given. 

When your branch or parish sends a check to the National Books Fund as a memorial 
or as a gift to a Seminarian, the CPC secretary should so inform the recipient of the memorial 
or gift.

Message for the Episcopal Churchwomen's Yearbook — 1977-78 

from the Right Reverend Thomas A. Fraser 

Bishop of the Diocese of North Carolina 



The Episcopal Churchwomen in the Diocese of North Carolina continue to gain strength. 
This was particularly noticeable at their last Annual Meeting and is apparent as I visit parishes 
around the diocese. This is largely due to the new perspective which the Episcopal Church- 
women have slowly been adopting, which is one of not only word but example, not only one 
of giving but serving, not only one of meeting but acting. 

The world is sorely in need of Christian response and Christian witness and I am grateful 
for the new thrust of our Episcopal Churchwomen and rejoice in the progress which they are 
making. 

Faithfully, Your Bishop 



PRAYERS 



RENEWAL 
Almighty God, by whose Holy Spirit your children are led to acknowledge Jesus Christ 
as Lord and Savior; grant that this same Spirit may so dwell in us that we may be daily 
renewed, and manifest in our lives the Love that reaches out in blessing to all people. 
Empower us to help build up your Kingdom on earth to your honor and glory. We ask this, 
gracious Father, in the name of your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

GUIDANCE 
Direct us, O Lord, in all our doings, with Thy most gracious favor and further us with 
Thy continual help; that in all our works begun, continued and ended in Thee, we may 
glorify Thy Holy Name, and finally, by Thy mercy, obtain everlasting life; through Jesus 
Christ our Lord. Amen. 

EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 

Almighty God, our heavenly Father, bless we pray Thee, our work for the extension 
of Thy Kingdom, and make us so thankful for the precious gift to us of Thy beloved Son, 
that we may pray fervently, labor diligently, and give liberally to make Him known to 
all nations as their Saviour and their King through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Almighty God, whose love reacheth unto the world's end, and who didst send Thy 
blessed Son to redeem all mankind, help us, we pray Thee, so to reveal Thy love in prayer 
and work and stewardship, that by Thy spirit all nations and people may be baptized into 
one body, even as all are redeemed by one Saviour; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

MISSIONS 
Almighty God, help us we pray Thee, to shed abroad the light of Thy church in all the 
world. Give us greater zeal for Thy Kingdom, that we may offer abundantly our prayers, 
our work, and our gifts; so that the earth may be filled with the knowledge of Thy glory, 
as the waters cover the sea, through Thy Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

CHRISTIAN SOCIAL RELATIONS 
Send us, O God, as Thy messengers to hearts without a home, to lives without love, to 
the crowds without a guide. Send us to the children whom none have blessed, to the 
famished whom none have visited, to the fallen whom none have lifted, to the bereaved 
whom none have comforted. Kindle Thy flame on the altars of our hearts, that others 
may be warmed thereby; causing Thy light to shine in our souls, that others may see the 
way; keep our sympathies and insight ready, our wills keen, our hands quick to help our 
brothers in their need; for Christ's sake. Amen. 

UNITED THANK OFFERING 

O God, who art the hope of all peoples everywhere, we thank Thee for the outpourings 
of love and generosity which have enabled us to respond to some of the world's needs in 
places far and near; guide us as we face changing times and new frontiers; keep our hearts 
thankful and our vision clear as we work to fulfill our vocation and ministry as members 
of the body of thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Accept, O Father, this joyful sacrifice of thanksgiving and praise, and bless these gifts 
to the setting forward of Thy Kingdom; that as we have gratefully received the benefits 
Thy bounty has bestowed, so we may cheerfully share them with Thy children in all the 
world; for His sake whose life and death and rising to life again were a song of praise to 
Thee, O Thou Most Holy, our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen. 

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 
O God, who has sent Thy beloved Son to be unto us the Way, the Truth and the Life; grant 
that we, looking unto Him may set forward the teaching power of Thy Church, to the nurture 
of Thy children, the increase of Thy Kingdom and the glory of Thy Son, Jesus Christ our 
Lord. Amen. 

DIOCESAN MISSIONARIES 
O Lord and Heavenly Father, without whom we can do no good thing, but with whose 
help even Thy little ones go forth as the mighty, we beseech Thee to prosper the work of 



all Thy missionaries, wherever they may be (and especially the work of Thy servant . . . .) 
Grant them the wisdom to know and the strength to do Thy will, and bless them with 
the hope and consolation of Thy heavenly promises, for the sake of Thy Son, Our Saviour, 
Jesus Christ. Amen. 

COLLEGE WORK AND CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES 
We pray, O Lord, for guidance as we search for laborers for Thy harvest. May we 
remember that whatever our calling, it may be directed to Thee. Bless teachers, students, 
and chaplains at all institutions of learning. Open our eyes that we may find and encourage 
the right young men and women for full time church work. In Jesus' name. Amen. 

THE CHURCH PERIODICAL CLUB 
O Lord Jesus Christ, Who art the Light of the World, pour out, we beseech Thee, upon all 
Thy servants Thy Holy Spirit of Wisdom and understanding that they may know the hope 
of Thy calling, the riches of Thine inheritance in the saints, and the greatness of Thy 
power to us who believe. More especially we pray Thee to direct and prosper the Church 
Periodical Club that in all its prayer and labor it may be enabled to make the light of Thy 
glory shine forth in the dark places of the earth. And do Thou of Thy mercy and grace 
establish Thy Church in the truth of Thy Gospel, who livest and reignest with the Father 
and the Holy Spirit ever One God, world without end. Amen. 

USE BEFORE AND AT THE TIME OF THE ELECTION OF OFFICERS 
O Holy Spirit, Whose quidance and inspiration alone can enable us to fulfill the Will of 
God, teach us, we pray Thee, the dignity of our work as churchwomen, and give us grace 
to choose as our leaders those whom Thou dost call to Thy faithful service. To those so chosen 
give a spirit of reverence in the exercise of their office, and to all of us a deep sense of our 
obligation in the discharge of every duty, to do all to the glory of God through Jesus Christ 
our Lord. Amen. 

BENEDICTION 
May the blessings of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, rest 
upon us and upon all work and worship done in His name. May He give us light to guide 
us, courage to support us, and love to unite us, now and forevermore. Amen. 



SERVICE FOR INSTALLATION OF OFFICERS 
For Branch Use 

The Officers and Board shall advance to the Altar rail, then the President shall say: 

Reverend Sir, on behalf of the women of Church, I present to you the 

Officers of the Episcopal Churchwomen of this parish. 

RECTOR: Let us pray. 

Blessed Spirit of God, come to these Thy servants in all Thy fullness and power. 
Compass their minds with wisdom. Fire their wills with Thy might. Melt their hearts 
with Thy love. Through Thy grace make them wholly Thine until they are lost in Thee; 
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Will you accept the responsibilities placed upon you, and endeavor to discharge the 
duties of leadership to the best of your ability? 

OFFICERS: We will. 

RECTOR: Will you, through private prayer, Bible study, and regular attendance at the 
Holy Communion, seek to grow in knowledge of God and His purpose for you, and for 
the world? 

OFFICERS: We will. 

RECTOR: Will you strive by word and deed for the advancement of God's kingdom in 
this parish and beyond? 

OFFICERS: We will. 

RECTOR: Let us pray: 

Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, visit, we pray Thee, these officers of the Episcopal Church- 
women with Thy love. Enlighten their minds more and more with the light of the Gospel so 
that they may walk before Thee in humility, yet with a high sense of the great privilege 
of their responsibility. Save them from complacency and fear of new ways; and give them 
selflessness — patience — courage — gentleness — thankfulness — humor — faithfulness — en- 



thusiasm — wisdom. So, as they daily present themselves to Thee for renewal, may they be 
even stronger channels of Thy grace, and instruments of Thy will in the spiritual life of the 
Diocese. Amen. 

The Blessings of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, be upon you 
and remain with you for ever. Amen. 



SERVICE OF INSTALLATION OF 
OFFICERS FOR THE EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 

Let those who have been elected stand before the Bishop and then let him say: 
It is right and fitting that those who have been duly elected as Officers of the Episcopal 
Churchwomen, Diocese of North Carolina, should be formally received and admitted into 
their respective offices in your presence; and that we should ask the blessings of God upon 
them for their support and guidance in the performance of the duties which you have 
laid upon them. 

O Lord, save these Thy servants, 
Who put their trust in Thee, 
Send them help from the holy place, 
And evermore mightily defend them, 
O Lord, hear our prayer. 
And let our cry come unto Thee. 
Let us pray. 
Our Father . . . 

Direct us, O Lord, in all our doings, with Thy most gracious favour, and further us 
with Thy continual help; that in all our works begun, continued and ended in Thee, we may 
glorify Thy holy name, and finally by Thy mercy, obtain everlasting life; through Jesus 
Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Almighty God, the giver of all good gifts; give Thy Grace, we humbly beseech Thee, 
to these Thy servants who have been chosen to serve Thee in the special work for which 
they have been selected; grant unto them zeal and earnestness in the performance of their 
office; wisdom and strength to meet each day their task; and love in the doing of it; and 
give them vision to see their opportunities for service, to the glory of Thy great name and 
the benefit of Thy Holy Church, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Bless us, O God, with the vision of Thy Being and Thy Beauty, that in the strength 
of it we may work without haste and without rest; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

I receive and admit you to the office of Be faithful, zealous, sincere 

and humble in all your tasks, and may the Grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of 
God our Father and the guiding fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you evermore. Amen. 

BENEDICTION 
The Father, Son and Holy Ghost bless, preserve and keep you, in your work, in your 
worship, this day and always, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 



THE PRESIDENT'S ADDRESS 

95th Annual Meeting 

Episcopal Churchwomen, Diocese of North Carolina 

St. Timothy's Church 

Wilson, North Carolina 

April 19, 1977 

Bishop Fraser, Delegates, and Guests 
My Friends, What a Year This Has Been! 

I am grateful to you and to our loving Lord for the privilege that is mine in serving as your 
president at this time in our history, and for having had the opportunity to be a part of some 
of our church's most historic moments. It has been a challenging year, filled with joy and 
happiness. 

Last year I issued a call for a broader vision as we faced changes in the church — I heeded 
my own advice: I hope you have too! Because today we stand on the threshold of a new 
church — Post-Minneapolis. It is one we may not be comfortable with just yet, but there is an 
aura of excitement and expectancy as we begin to break out of our narrow confines and look to 
the future. This is not to say the change is without pain, heartache, or anguish — for these are 
very real and are present in the church. But traditionally churchwomen have been the inno- 
vators as well as the reconcilers, and we are called now to exercise both of these roles. 

I urge you to keep an open mind as you study and use the new proposed prayer book. It 
seems prudent and wise to use it before judging it. Our service tonight will be the Holy 
Eucharist, Rite I from the New Book; I have every confidence you will experience the same 
majesty and beauty and reverence in this service that you have found in the Book of Common 
Prayer Service. 

Also in Minneapolis, the church changed a two thousand year old tradition by opening the 
priesthood and episcopacy to women. We know there is still a threat of division in the church 
as a result of this action. There is also great frustration on the part of many of the ordained 
women who are encountering dwindling support from the very bishops and clergy who voted 
tto open the priesthood to them. The trust of these women in the institutional church is 
shaken. They are a long way from the "Promised Land", they are, in fact, in the wilderness. 
It is hoped that Episcopal Churchwomen will search for ways to be supportive of all women as 
they exercise their ministries, both lay and ordained. 

In January, I represented you in St. Louis at the Open Conference on the Ministry of 
Women, sponsored by the Task Force on Women of the Lay Ministries Committee of the 
National Church. This was an historic occasion because it was the first time in its history that 
the National Church has ever sponsored a meeting for women! The Episcopal Churchwomen 
who met there with this diverse group of women left with a determined effort to become more 
"a part of", rather than "apart from", their parish and Diocesan structures; to work for a more 
active voice in the policy and decision-making process of the church. I commend this action 
to you. If you do not have a liaison relationship with your vestry, then seek it. If your Episcopal 
Churchwomen committee chairmen do not serve on their counterpart parish committees, 
request that they be appointed. Many times this omission is merely an oversight on the part 
of the vestry. We are in some respects "apart-from" diocesan structure for rarely does a board 
member serve on her Counterpart Diocesan Committee. It is my hope that we will become a 
more integral part of the Diocese in this triennium: When we all work together, we strengthen 
the body of Christ. 

In view of the changes taking place in the church relative to changing roles for women, it is 
interesting to note that Episcopal Churchwomen resolved their own identity problem at this 
triennial in Minneapolis and voted to continue their meetings. They adopted a purpose and 
an on-going structure and elected personnel to implement their plans. It is conceivable that 
the Episcopal Churchwomen may, in the future, cease to exist as a separate body within 
the church. However, today this organization is viable and provides the vehicle for people to 
come together to worship the Lord, to study, to experience christian fellowship, to exercise 
their stewardship and to witness to God's love in serving others. 

In the Diocese of North Carolina we are completing our 95th year and it is another year of 
successful witness on the part of thousands of women who find it satisfying and joyful to work 



together to further the mission of the church. We are aware that we are not responding to 
women in our church who are employed and therefore unable to participate in activities of 
the churchwomen. As I have criss-crossed the Diocese this year, I have been asked over and 
over to find a way to include working women in the overall picture of Churchwomen. After 
Annual Meeting, I will appoint an Ad-Hoc Committee to work with me in designing such a 
program. I do not promise instant success, but I do promise a beginning. We will seek advice 
from other Dioceses, from the Task Force on Women, and I solicit suggestions and ideas from 
all of you in attempting to solve a problem that is increasing and one that touches all of our 
branches, regardless of size. 

In reviewing the year, no report to you would be complete without a resume of its high- 
lights, and a glimpse of coming events. Our seminar at Quail Roost Conference Center last 
fall was filled to capacity. Our sessions with the Rev. Fitzsimmons Allison turned out to be a 
mind-stretching experience! We are eagerly looking forward to our fourth annual seminar 
scheduled at Quail Roost for September 26-28. It gives me great pleasure to announce that 
Bishop Fraser will lead it and we will examine issues and concerns confronting women in 
these troublesome and pressure-packed times in the context that "it's not like it used to be, 
but the answers are the same." In the narthex of St. Timothy's there is a box in which you may 
deposit questions you would like to have answered or concerns you have that you would like 
discussed and the Bishop has promised to build them into his planning. This conference 
should be a valuable and meaningful time for those who come. (Mrs. Long will give you the 
details tomorrow) 

Attendance at our January worship retreat was down from last year due to the bitter cold and 
the flu season. Proof that when God closes one door. He opens another was evident when the 
daughters of the King of Emmanual Church in Southern Pines decided to join us this year for 
their quiet time. We look forward to having them with us next year. 

Tomorrow you will hear a report on the camp and conference center study which resulted 
from action on a resolution by this body at last year's annual meeting. If this is to become a 
reality for the Diocese, it is necessary for you to let the council members know that you are in 
favor of it and will support it. I hope you will be prepared to take whatever action is necessary 
as evidence of your support. Keep your ears attuned during the coming months to whatever 
action the council takes. 

It has been heartwarming to hear your comments following spring planning days. We were 
delighted to learn that you felt, as did the board, that our new format successfully told the 
story of the interacting program of the churchwomen. These workshops provide us with the 
opportunity to meet in small groups and share our successes and failures with one another. 
The sessions were well-attended and are a testimony of your commitment to your office in 
your branch. The Ways and Means Workshop added this year was well received and will be 
included in the future as a regular feature. The Executive Board joins me in thanking you for 
your input which contributed so much to their success. 

In spite of the run-away inflation which grips the country, your giving to the world wide 
mission of the church continues to be inspiring. Over $104,000 was handled by the treasurer 
or appropriate board member during 1976. Giving is up in almost every area. Your pledges 
of $20,642 showed a slight increase over last year; we sent $1,637 to the Church Periodical 
Club, and our United Thank Offering of $35,586.87 is the largest ingathering we have ever 
had in the Diocese. However, the Missionary Christmas Fund has been declining for the 
past several years. If you could but read the warm letters of appreciation we receive from these 
special people, you would understand how much these gifts at Christmas mean to them. I 
hope you will think about this next fall when you make up your budgets. This year the nine 
missionaries affiliated with our Diocese received checks of $216.00. Through "Specials" you 
gave $41,819.00 which is much less than reported last year. However indications are that all of 
the money you gave to Specials was not sent through the Diocesan treasurer. 

What makes the heart sing is the Church women's understanding that stewardship is more 
than gifts of money. It also means living out our Lord's second great commission to clothe the 
naked, feed the hungry, shelter the homeless and care for the sick, the elderly and the handi- 
capped. Branch activities affirm this understanding of stewardship. Women have established 
in their churches clothes closets, emergency food pantries, soup groups, sewing guilds for 
making layettes for infants of indigent mothers of lap robes for the old and the ill; they have 
set up visiting programs which work; they furnish intercity transportation for medical 
appointments. Wherever they go, wherever they serve, they are witnessing to God's love for 
all of his children and thus become "His witnessing community." 



Approximately twenty-five years ago, this was the theme for the triennium. In spite of 
the admonition that you "can't go back", I resurrected this theme because the church today 
is moving in new and creative ways which I felt needed to be shared by all of us. As we spend 
the next few hours discovering the many ways in which we are a witnessing community, do 
not overlook the basic fact that prayer and study precede any programs of action. 

While we are cognizant of the issues and changes facing the church, we are equally aware 
that there will always be issues and changes facing her. Our challenge is not in our solutions 
to these problems, but in the depth of our commitment to Jesus Christ! Continuing study of 
God's word and an ever-deepening prayer life are the keys to Christian Growth; and then by 
witnessing to Christ in our daily activities and telling others about him, we may live out the 
Christian Life. 

How great is your commitment?

Mrs. E. G. Flannagan, Jr. reported for the Camp and Conference Committee and outlined

activities of the Diocese. Mrs. Flannagan urged support of the Branches in terms of money, 
as well as by letters to Council members. 

The following resolutions were presented for the Resolutions Committee by Mrs. Tyndall 
Harris, chairman: 

RESOLUTION ON TELEVISION VIOLENCE 

Whereas the Episcopal Churchwomen of the Diocese of North Carolina have an abiding con- 
cern for the health and welfare of all of God's creatures, and 

Whereas the medium of television has assumed a powerful role in shaping the attitudes and 
values of individuals in our society, and 

Whereas repeated exposure to violent acts as a way of life creates an unacceptable tolerance of 
violent behavior in oneself and others, and 

Whereas we realize the detrimental effects on the stability and sensitivity of the viewing 
public such violence can have, therefore be it 
resolved that the Episcopal Churchwomen of the Diocese of North Carolina deplore the 



11 



continued showing of television programs depicting violence, in that the same is offensive 
and constitutes a harmful influence by giving notoriety to unlawful behavior and can, in 
many cases, lead to aggressive behavior; 

Be it further resolved that individual Episcopal Churchwomen write letters of opposition to 
sponsors of these same programs; 

Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be sent to the three major networks in the 
United States, the United States Congressional sub-committee on Child & Human Develop- 
ment and Communications, Common Cause, the Congressional delegation from North 
Carolina, and the major advertisers of violent television programs. 

Mrs. Harris moved its adoption and it was passed. 

RESOLUTION ON WORLD HUNGER AND DOMESTIC HUNGER 

Whereas the problem of World and Domestic Hunger is one which continues to involve all peoples, 

and 

Whereas the people of the United States who comprise 5.6% of the world's population con- 
sume 52% of the world's disposable resources, and 

Whereas each of us as a Christian is committed to walk in the way of our Lord and to follow 
His admonitions, now therefore be it 

Resolved that each person in attendance at the 1977 Annual Meeting of the Episcopal Church- 
women of the Diocese of North Carolina urge her Branch to study World and Domestic 
Hunger, inform others of the problem and make some sacrificial offering of time, talent and 
money to the alleviation of this problem, and be it further 

Resolved that each person in attendance at the 1977 Annual Meeting of the Episcopal Church- 
women of the Diocese of North Carolina attempt to simplify her lifestyle as a part of this 

sacrificial offering. 

Mrs. Harris moved its adoption and it was passed. 

RESOLUTION ON CAMP AND CONFERENCE CENTER 

Whereas at the Ninety-fourth Annual Meeting of the Episcopal Churchwomen of the Diocese 
of North Carolina, a resolution was adopted which requested the Bishop and Diocesan 
Council to appoint a broad-based committee to make an in-depth study of the feasibility 
of establishing a Camp and Conference Center for the Diocese of North Carolina along 
with a recommended plan for action, and 

Whereas, pursuant to action on that resolution by the Diocesan Council, the Bishop appointed 
a committee to study the feasibility of establishing such a center, and 

Whereas that Committee reported to the 161st Annual Convention of the Diocese of North 
Carolina, meeting in Roanoke Rapids, that such a Camp and Conference Center was needed 
in this Diocese, and presented a resolution adopted by that Convention which endorsed 
the concept of a Camp and Conference Center and directed the Diocesan Council to explore 
methods of raising capital funds with which to construct a Camp and Conference Center, 
therefore, be it 

Resolved that the Episcopal Churchwomen of the Diocese of North Carolina reaffirm their 

interest in and support of the establishment of a Camp and Conference Center and assure the 
Bishop and Diocesan Council of their readiness to assist by whatever means the Diocesan 
Council determines to be necessary to finance such a Camp and Conference Center for 
the Diocese of North Carolina. 
Mrs. Harris moved its adoption and it was passed. 

Mrs. E. G. Flannagan, Jr. then moved that a copy of this resolution be sent to all Branches not 
present at the 95th Annual Meeting and to the Diocesan Council. This motion was seconded 
and approved. 

RESOLUTION ON CHILD ABUSE 

Whereas all people are children of God, who have dignity and deserve to be so treated, and 
Whereas Jesus Christ showed anger and disapproval when the weak were oppressed or 

mistreated, and 
Whereas Jesus Christ singled out children when he said, "Suffer the little children to come 

unto me and forbid them not, for of such is the kingdom of God," and 
Whereas child abuse, physically, spiritually and emotionally, is becoming more widespread 
daily, as reported by the news and the media, therefore be it 



12 



Resolved that the Ninety-Fifth Annual Meeting of the Episcopal Churchwomen of the Diocese 
of North Carolina, meeting in Wilson, N.C., go on record opposing child abuse and en- 
couraging all people to urge their legislators to make laws protecting children from abuse 
and help enforce those already in existence. Further, be it 

Resolved, that we work towards those conditions which will lessen the chances of child abuse. 
Mrs. Harris moved its adoption and it was passed. 

RESOLUTION ON ORDINATION OF HOMOSEXUALS 

Whereas God created all persons in his image and blessed them, and 

Whereas God felt the need for man to have a helpmate in the form of a woman rather another 
man to share his life, and 

Whereas God ordained that a man leave his father and mother and cleave unto his wife that 
they be one flesh, and 

Whereas God opposed sexual perversions of his people throughout the Old and New Testa- 
ments, and 

Whereas we believe the Bible to be most explicit in both the Old and New Testaments as to the 
use of our sexual desires, and 

Whereas by not publicly acknowledging or taking a stand on the issue of homosexuality, 
we are condoning this practice, now therefore be it 

Resolved that the Ninety-Fifth Annual Meeting of the Episcopal Churchwomen of the Diocese 
of North Carolina, meeting in Wilson, North Carolina, go on record as opposing the ordi- 
nation of practicing homosexuals. Be it further 

Resolved that the Secretary is instructed to send copies of this Memorial to the Presiding 
Bishop, the Diocesan Bishop and the Diocesan Committee on Ministry. 
Mrs. Harris moved its adoption and it was passed. 

RESOLUTION CONCERNING THE 1928 BOOK OF COMMON PRAYER 

Whereas we, the Episcopal Churchwomen of the Diocese of North Carolina, express a deep 

and abiding love for the Holy Catholic Church, and 
Whereas we are desirous for continued peace and unity within the Church, and 
Whereas many communicants are disturbed over the changes in wording, order of services, 

and theology in the Proposed Book of Prayer, and 
Whereas the Presiding Bishop, the Right Reverend John N. Allin, has stated that "If loyal, 

devout people want to worship with the old Prayer Book, they should not be denied it," 

therefore, be it 
Resolved that the Episcopal Churchwomen, out of love for the Holy Catholic Church and our 

desire for peace and unity within it, request the Deputies to the General Convention from 

the Diocese of North Carolina to respect the wish of the Presiding Bishop to keep the 1928 

Book of Common Prayer as an alternative to the Proposed Book of Prayer. 

This resolution was reported out of committee without prejudice. On motion duly made 
and seconded, action on this Resolution was postponed until the 96th Annual Meeting of 
the Episcopal Churchwomen in order that sufficient time be given for study and use. 

RESOLUTION— BY-LAW #3 CHANGE 

Whereas By-Law #3 as passed at the 1976 Annual Meeting, establishing the number of dele- 
gates from each Branch to the President and two other delegates does not democratically 
represent the voice of the Branches, and 

Whereas the delegates play a large role in responsibility for the dissemination of the purposes 
of that organization to individual members or chapters; therefore it is necessary that the 
larger Branches have sufficient delegates to carry on this important work, and 

Whereas a smaller convention makes less communication between Parishes and diminishes 
enthusiasm at the Annual Meeting, now therefore be it 

Resolved that By-Law #3 of the Episcopal Churchwomen be changed to read: "3. Each Branch 
having fifty members or less shall be represented by the President and one other delegate 
(appointed by the President or elected by the Branch). The President, or her representative, 
and the delegate each has a vote. Each additional fifty members enrolled in the Episcopal 
Churchwomen shall entitle the Branch to an additional delegate with power to vote; how- 
ever, in order to have voting privileges, a Branch must have paid a pledge to the Diocesan 
Churchwomen's Budget for the preceding year and must have reported to the Treasurer the 
number of active members in the Branch." 



13 



This resolution was reported from committee without prejudice. On motion duly made and 
seconded, the resolution was tabled and the President was requested to appoint an ad hoc 
committee to study the problem of delegate representation to Annual Meeting. 

Mrs. Gerald Barrett, Treasurer, presented the budget as proposed by the Finance Com- 
mittee. The 1976 financial report was accepted as presented upon motion by Mrs. Barrett. Her 
motion for the disbursement of the surplus from the 1976 budget was approved and was 
allocated as follows: $300 to Dr. John Harding, III in Nepal, and $200 for the New Treasurer's 
Account. The current grants of $6,800.00 for the 1977 budget for Inside and Outside the 
Diocese were adopted on motion of the Treasurer. (See detail on page 24) The proposed 1978 
budget was presented in the amount of $21,000.00 and was accepted upon motion of the 
Treasurer. Mrs. Barrett's motion that the Epiphany Offering go to Everall and Stuart Peele, 
missionaries in Haiti, was approved. 

Mrs. Evans introduced the third facet of the program on "His Witnessing Community" — 
"Witnessing to the Least of These." Outreach programs were described and explicated by the 
following: The Hungry: The Rev. Terry L. Bonnette, N.C.-S.C. Regional Director, CROP; The 
Sick: Mrs. James Craven, Durham, "Hospice"; Mrs. J. P. Gorell, Greensboro, "Holy Trinity's 
Sewing Program"; The Aged: Mr. James Barber, Greensboro, "Share a Home", Mrs. Oscar 
Cranz, Charlotte, "Christ Church's Shut-in Visiting Program"; The Handicapped: Mr. 
Anthony Dingman, "Job Placement for the Handicapped".

REPORT OF THE COURTESY COMMITTEE 

Bishop Fraser, Bishop Vache, members of the clergy, Mrs. Evans, delegates and visitors to 
the 95th Annual Meeting of the Churchwomen of the Diocese of North Carolina meeting in 
Wilson at St. Timothy's Church: 

It is a great joy for the Churchwomen to come together each year for fellowship and inspira- 
tion. Scott Evans through her dedicated leadership has made this past year one to be remem- 
bered by all of us. 

The members of St. Timothy's Church have truly been an example of a container, as de- 
scribed by Bishop Vache, filled to overflowing with love and devotion in planning and pre- 
paring this meeting and in so being will inspire each of us to go forth as members of His Wit- 
nessing Community. 

On behalf of all present we would like to say a special heartfelt thank you to the Co-Chair- 
men, Mrs. William H. Holdford and Mrs. Virginia A. Furr and their committees; and to Mrs. 
Harlee W. Lyon, President of the Churchwomen of St. Timothy's. Your hospitality and gra- 
ciousness coupled with the surroundings have made this a perfect meeting. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Mrs. T. A. Fulton, Chairman 
Mrs. Tomme Gamewell 
Mrs. Nicholas Long

Raleigh, North Carolina 27602 

Episcopal Churchwomen 
Diocese of North Carolina 

We have examined the statement of assets, liabilities and fund balances of Episcopal 
Churchwomen, Diocese of North Carolina, as of December 31, 1976 and the related statement 
of changes in fund balances for the year then ended. Our examination was made in accordance 
with generally accepted auditing standards, and accordingly included such tests of the 
accounting records and such other auditing procedures as we considered necessary in the cir- 
cumstances. As to funds received, our examination was limited to recorded receipts. 

In our opinion the accompanying statement of assets, liabilities and fund balances and the 
related statement of changes in fund balances present fairly the financial position of Episcopal 
Churchwomen, Diocese of North Carolina as of December 31, 1976 and the results of its opera- 
tions for the year then ended, in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles 
applied on a basis consistent with that of the preceding year. The current year's supplemen- 
tary data included in Schedule 1 have been subjected to the same auditing procedures and, 
in our opinion, are stated fairly in all material respects when considered in conjunction with 
the basic financial statements as a whole.

provinces in the United States. The Diocese of North Carolina belongs to the Fourth Pro- 
vince, known as the Sewanee Province. The work of the province is educational and pro- 
motional. 

Diocese: A group of parishes and missions under the jurisdiction of a Bishop. The Diocese of 
North Carolina has 63 parishes and 48 missions. See the Constitution and By-Laws in 
this Yearbook for the organization of the Episcopal Churchwomen in this Diocese. 

Convocation: A number of parishes and missions within a given area in a diocese. There 
are five convocations in the Diocese of North Carolina. See the Constitution, Article X, in

Parish and Mission: A fellowship of redeemed people doing God's work under the leadership 
and direction of a priest. A parish is self-supporting, whereas a mission receives support 
from the diocese. 

The organization of Episcopal Churchwomen in a parish or mission is known as a Branch 
and is patterned after the Diocesan organization. The membership is composed of commu- 
nicants who choose to be active members. The structure should be simple and flexible, de- 
pending on the size, interests, and needs of the group. 

In large parishes the Branch may be divided into smaller groups known as Chapters. The 
Chapters may have officers corresponding to those of the Branch.

EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 
History 

The first organized women's groups within the Church were called "Female Missionary 
Societies," as their purpose was to raise money for the support of missionaries. In 1871 
General Convention recommended that the women of the Church, in every parish and mis- 
sion in the land, be organized under the name of the "Woman's Auxiliary to the Board of 
Missions." This was done in 1872 and for many years the chief function of organized women's 
groups of the Church was to raise money for the support of the missionary work of the Church. 

When the Church reorganized its administration and the National Council was set up in 
1919, it asked that the Woman's Auxiliary, instead of being auxiliary only to the Board of Mis- 
sions, be made "The Woman's Auxiliary to the National Council of the Protestant Episcopal 
Church in the United States of America." This change widened and increased the responsi- 
bilities and opportunities open to the women of the Church. 

In recognition of the fact that women were a part of the Church, not just an auxiliary to it, 
in 1958 National Council created the General Division of Women's Work, the executive body 
on the national level, representing all of the work of all the women of the Church. 

Following this action the Triennial Meeting recommended "Episcopal Churchwomen" as 

the designation for the women of a diocese, and "The Women of Church", as 

the name in the parish. 

The history of women's work in the Diocese of North Carolina dates back to 1881 when the 
Diocese of North Carolina was the whole area of the state. The Rt. Rev. Theodore Lyman, 
Bishop of the Diocese, asked Mrs. John Wilkes of Charlotte to form a Diocesan organization 
of Woman's Auxiliary branches. In 1882 at the Diocesan Convention in Tarboro, representa- 
tives from six branches with a total membership of one hundred were organized as the 
Woman's Auxiliary of the Diocese of North Carolina to the Board of Missions, thereby be- 
coming one of twenty-six organized in the national church prior to 1883. 

In April 1959 at the Annual Meeting in Winston-Salem, a resolution was adopted changing 
the name of the organization to "Episcopal Churchwomen of the Diocese of North Caro- 
lina." It was suggested that, for uniformity, parish branches be known as "Episcopal Church- 
women of Parish".

tional life of your parish. 

2. Seek to enrich your own spiritual depth by following a Rule of Life, such as daily prayer 
and devotional reading, meditation and Bible study, daily surrender of self to God to be used 
as a channel for His service, and regular rededication to Christ through the Holy Communion. 

3. Build up your own personal devotional library of prayers, books, pamplets, poems, 
hymns and tapes. 

RESPONSIBILITIES AS BRANCH SECRETARY 

You have been assigned a particular sphere of work. You should not let it become separated 
from the work of the others on the Board. All work of the women should be at the direction of 
the Holy Spirit. 

Keep your Board ever mindful of its reason for being, by seeing that worship is an in- 
tegral part of all planning and work. It would be well to allow for a moment of prayer, either 
silent or oral, before taking final action on any matter, in order that each member may seek our 
Lord's will. The few minutes required for this practice could transform a group to being "the 
body of Christ" in a very real sense. 

1. Lead the devotions at the Board meetings or arrange for someone else to do so. 

2. Plan, with the Devotional Life Chairman in each chapter, a devotion related to the study 
program. 

3. Plan Quiet Days, Retreats, Schools of Prayer, Corporate Communions, World Day of 
Prayer observance, the formation of Bible study-prayer groups.

MISSIONS 

Mrs. Ralston F. Welch, Secretary 
321 Ardmore Drive, High Point 27262 

The purpose of this office is to encourage churchwomen to participate in the world- 
wide mission of the Church. 

Information and suggestions to help attain this purpose follow. 

1. Pray daily for the world-wide mission of the Church. 

2. A good policy is to divide the Branch budget 50% inside the parish and 50% outside. 
Give to missions through your Diocesan pledge. This will enable the churchwomen on the 
Diocesan level to accept larger priority projects, thereby accomplishing more in a given area. 
Suggested projects will be sent upon request. 

3. Remember especially the missionaries from the Diocese of North Carolina. Pray for 
them by name and write to them periodically. Participate in the Missionary Christmas 
Gift for both active and retired missionaries from this Diocese. The total money collected is 
divided equally among them. Please see that the check is made payable to Mrs. Ralston 
F. Welch, Secretary (see above address) and mailed to her by NOVEMBER 15. 

4. By action of the 1977 Annual Meeting, the 1978 Epiphany offering will go to Stuart and 
Everall Peele. Please encourage your branch to seriously consider participating in this offer- 
ing. Send it to the Diocesan Treasurer. 

5. Many branches have expressed interest in assigning a specific missionary to each 
convocation. The purpose is to concentrate their monies, prayers etc. on one or two people 
and become more closely involved with them. 

Below are the 1977-1978 assignments. 
NORTHEAST— Jocelyn Gordon, Sister Adelaide 
CENTRAL— The Rev. Mark Boesser, Miss Rachel Wolff 
NORTHWEST — Mrs. Harvey Simmonds, Stuart and Everall Peele 
SOUTHWEST— Mrs. Henrv Chapman 
SANDHILLS— The Rev. Marvin C. Perry

6. Remember that mission begins at home and extends throughout the world. Christian 
Social Relations, United Thank Offering, Church Periodical Club, College Work, and 
Missions are inseparable in that each offers opportunities for mission and ministry to 
people. Every churchwoman can participate. Please do your part to make this a successful 
year.

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

Mrs. Thomas J. Randall 
923 W. Horah Street, Salisbury 28144 

"And the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the Spirit of Wisdom and Understand- 
ing, the Spirit of Counsel and Might, the Spirit of Knowledge and the fear of the Lord." 
This moving passage from Isaiah 11:2 applies not only at Confirmation, but to us as concerned 
leaders in Christian Education as we venture into the basic interests and needs of our lives 
as well as of others in the world today. There are many sources for what wisdom we need and 
we should explore them in many ways. Attendance at the Spring Workshops will have pro- 
vided many of us with ideas for study, books to order and to consider, and suggestions from 
other branches for successful programs. Just the idea of congenial fellowship among 



33 



Episcopal women at this time of meditation and communion can be inspiring for our 
future experience. If I or any of the Diocesan officers can provide you with any help with 
themes on Missions, Christian Social Relations, etc., please don't hesitate to call on us. 
Participation in the Annual Conference whether at Kanuga or the Seminar at Quail Roost 
in Durham, N. C. is also recommended because new ideas and formats are often generated 
here. This opportunity for learning and relaxing in a beautiful setting can be invaluable. 

A theme for your new year may be developed in many ways and we should remember 
that books are not our sole resource — people, communities, multi-media, church and learn- 
ing institutions are also at our fingertips when we look for ways to present some facet of 
Christian Education. It is also important to remember that programs need not be a static 
experience each year — they can be varied as women are varied and presented in different 
ways by the individual speaker or by panel discussion, by them teaching (perhaps by one 
Branch member and one outsider from the community) or by. round robin contributions. 
Once you have selected your program topic, spend some time planning an unusual form 
of presentation. 

Keep in touch with new books and new ideas by reading faithfully your copies of The 
Episcopalian, The Living Church, and The Churchman. When you go to Kanuga, 
Quail Roost, Richmond or Atlanta remember to browse in the appropriate bookstores 
for new publications. Just don't neglect taking a reading of what your women really 
need and want — some may want to make in-depth studies of certain books of the Bible 
once again or an understanding of charismatic movements; some may want Episcopal 
Church history and the current trends of today. Circulate not only in bookstores and 
libraries but among your women, to know them and find direction for what we all need in 
furthering our concern for others — hopefully in renewing our commitment together in faith 
and love of God and his son Jesus Christ! 

I would like to alert you to certain authors of religious prose and poetry; some con- 
temporary, others familiar and classic for your inspiration and enjoyment!

CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES AND COLLEGE WORK 

Mrs. Don Blanton 
Country Club Circle, Lexington, N.C. 27292 

The purpose of this office is to give direction in two areas important to Episcopal Church- 
women. This past year has been spent listening and redefining the task of this office. During 
the next year, it is hoped that many new ideas will come to this section of the Episcopal Church- 
women. Please feel free to call Diocesan Secretary of Christian Ministries and College Work 
with your suggestions. 

CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES 

1. Investigate vocations within the church with emphasis on opportunities for women. 
There are many careers available — Ministries to minority groups, Higher Education, Hospital, 
Recreation, Orders, Chaplaincy, Nurses, Christian Education, Blind, Deaf, Retarded, Na- 
tional Institution for Lay Ministry (Church Army). This information on careers is found in 
Episcopal Church Annual. 

2. Encourage Churchwomen to participate in the Ministry of the Laity. The opportunities 
are different in every church and this office hopes to encourage women to serve in various 
areas such as Vestry persons, Lay Readers, Acolytes, teachers, Visiting Committee Members, 
and Members of Altar Guild. 

3. Express a special interest in Seminary students that go to Seminary from local church. 



35 



COLLEGE WORK 

The college work section of this office seeks to maintain a relationship with Episcopal stu- 
dents. 

1. Students who are away at college — 

a. Keep in touch with students. Make a file on each student and send birthday, Christ- 
mas, and Easter cards, newsletters, etc. 

b. Arrange get-together or honor the students at a regular church occasion such as a 
coffee hour after church service. 

c. Plan a Sunday for college students and use them as acolytes, lay readers and ushers. 

2. Students who come to local colleges— 

a. Check with local colleges and determine what the relationship can be between 
Churchwomen and Episcopal students. 

b. Encourage students to be a part of church program. 

3. College chaplain will visit and explain their role on college campus. Invite a chaplain to 
speak at Churchwomen's meeting or plan a special church service for the presentation. 



PROMOTION 

Mrs. John M. Cannon 
Rt. 7, Box 243, Raleigh 27609 

The essential duty of the Diocesan Promotion Secretary is to promote the ideas and 
activities of the Episcopal Churchwomen. It is her duty to keep all churchwomen informed 
of things to come and to report on noteworthy activities which have taken place. She is 
available to assist branch officers in promoting individual programs as well as diocesan 
sponsored ones. The effectiveness of this job depends somewhat on her being informed 
by local churchwomen about their endeavors. 

The Episcopal Churchwomen of North Carolina is a very vital organization offering many 
opportunities for spiritual growth to all its members and prospective members. Communi- 
cating this message is the task of all, but particularly the task of promotional workers. 
In keeping with this, the following suggestions are offered: 

1. Convocation Chairmen and Branch Presidents should be certain that someone is 
responsible for the work of informing the other members of what is going on in their organi- 
zations. 

2. Make effective use of your church bulletins and/or newsletters to inform members 
about coming events and activities. 

3. Assist other branch officers with your ideas and imagination in promoting the ECW 
and in promoting their respective programs. 

4. Establish a good relationship with your local press and solicit their aid in promoting 
your work. 

5. Inform other women in the Diocese of any activities or projects which you feel are out- 
standing by reporting them in the North Carolina Churchman. 

6. Contact your Diocesan Secretary for any assistance she may be able to give you in 
carrying out the above suggestions. 



ALTAR WORK AND SERVICE OF EXCHANGE 

Mrs. Charles Shaffer 
716 Gimghoul Drive, Chapel Hill 27514 

Altar Work is rewarding and meaningful service in all of its phases. Anything done in 
God's service and to His Glory should be performed with love and to the best of our 
ability. Parishes have different needs and customs. No attempt will be made to standardize. 
The object is to increase the efficiency and devotion of each Guild in carrying out the 
wishes of the Rector. Our Lord accepted the ministry of faithful women during His earthly 



36 



life. We pray that He accept and bless the work which our Guilds undertake in the care of their 
Sanctuaries. 

In the individual branches the Altar Guild Chairman is not always an officer of the 
ECW. In fact, there may not be a specific person to whom these responsibilities would be 
delegated. In such cases, I would appreciate those having access to this hand book assuring 
that the proper person, Rector or Altar Guild Chairman be given this information, so 
they may avail themselves of the services of this office. I encourage your correspondence 
on any help needed. 

This office will provide help in: 

1. Setting up procedures for Altar work. 

2. Teaching the skills necessary for maintaining a Sacristy, and preparing for various 
Services of Worship. 

3. Specific hints and helps for the various housekeeping problems which arise. 

4. Encouraging more ladies to participate in the activities of the Guild, and those in the 
Guild to refresh their enthusiasm for their work. 

5. Suggestions for services which the Guilds may provide other than the traditional 
housekeeping duties. 

6. In circulating items not currently in use by one Parish to a Parish or Mission where 
there is a need. 

7. In obtaining printed aids such as books, catalogues for Altar needs. 



ALTAR GUILD PRAYERS 

For use before work: 

Almighty God, grant we beseech Thee, that we may handle Holy things with reverence, 
and perform our work with such faithfulness and devotion, that it may rise with acceptance 
before Thee and obtain Thy blessing; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

For use after work: 

O God, bless and accept the work of my hands and all who minister to Thee in the 
care and adornment of Thy Sanctuary. Bless and hallow them who love the beauty of Thy 
House, that Thy Holy Name may be glorified; through Jesus Christ, Our Lord. Amen.

CHURCH PERIODICAL CLUB 

Mrs. Wally Ausley 
215 Reynolds Road, Raleigh, N.C. 27609 

The Church Periodical Club, serving the ministry of the printed word since 1888, is the 
only organization in the Episcopal Church devoted solely to supplying free printed material 
to those who cannot otherwise obtain it. Its steadily expanding, adaptable program is unique 
among the churches in giving free materials to responsible recipients they themselves 
specify. It is supported by contributions and most of its work is done by volunteers. 

CPC functions on all levels, nationally, world-wide, locally — in parishes, communities, 
dioceses. Religious, educational, technical, recreational books, magazines, leaflets are pro- 
vided for the most remote places and for nearest neighbors. Needs that exceed local 
resources are referred to National Books Fund. 

This fund is directed by a committee of experienced volunteers, meeting to evaluate 
each request. Most are granted as far as funds permit. National Books Fund projects have 
financed a translation of the Prayer Book in Malay to giving medical journals to the 
stations served by the S. S. Hope. 

How can CPC become alive in your Parish? 

1. Pray for the work of CPC for guidance asking God to direct you in spreading the 
Good News with the printed word. 

2. Plan to publicize the work of CPC to all men, women and children in your parish by 
observing the first Sunday in October. (CPC Sunday) 

3. Plan to educate your parish on CPC Sunday in the importance of continuing to 
supply printed materials to people around the world. 

4. Use your parish bulletin and meetings in your parish to remind them of CPC Sunday in 
October. Use the CPC prayers at all services and meetings that week in your parish. 

In our Diocese, the CPC work is done through the Episcopal Churchwomen, 
headed by a Diocesan Director of CPC and carried out by CPC secretaries in the branches. 
The Secretary of Missions could also serve as CPC Secretary in those churches of small 
membership. 

NOTES: 

All contributions should be sent to the Diocesan Director of CPC. All contributions should 
be made by check payable to Church Periodical Club. Do not remit to the ^iocesan Treasurer. 
Enclose a memo showing the source so proper credit can be given. 

When your branch or parish sends a check to the National Books Fund as a memorial 
or as a gift to a Seminarian, the CPC secretary should so inform the recipient of the memorial 
or gift.

PRESIDENT'S CROSS 

The engraved silver Celtic cross worn by the Diocesan President during her term of office 
was a gift of Mrs. Leslie Evans in 1956. She wore the cross during her administration as 
President of the Woman's Auxiliary and presented it to Mrs. T. P. Thoir^= =ith.jr installation at 
Annual Meeting, in the Church of the Good Shepherd, Raleigh, in 1958. The back of the cross 
bears the inscription: "President, Woman's Auxiliary, Diocese of North Carolina." 

PENDULA 

The pendula is worn by all Diocesan Past-Presidents in the IV Province. It is an oval of gold 
or silver, with a Chi-Rho symbol bearing seventeen stars on the crossbars. The stars represent 
the number of Dioceses in the Province. The pendula is a gift to our Retiring Diocesan President 
by Dr. Philip DeWolfe, now of Florida, in memory of his mother, Elizabeth Owens DeWolfe. 
Dr. DeWolfe's wife, Anne, was a member of our Diocesan Executive Board in 1963 when the 
decision was made to give the pendula to retiring Diocesan Presidents. At that time North 
Carolina was the only Diocese in the Province which did not present one to its President. 
Through Dr. DeWolfe's generosity, all living Past-Presidents were presented with a pendula at 
Annual Meeting at St. Michael's Church, Raleigh, in 1963. Mrs. James L. Godfrey of Chapel 
Hill was the Diocesan President when this tradition was begun in our Diocese. 

ALMS BASIN 

TheU.T.O. Alms Basin is made of silver and gold collected from all parishes in the Diocese of 
North Carolina; an idea conceived by Mrs. B. W. Roberts. Mrs. Brown Patterson designed the 
center seal made up of gold wedding rings, pins and crosses donated. Mr. Louis Glasier was 
the Ecclesiastical craftsman. It was dedicated by Bishop Penick at Annual Meeting, April 20, 
1955 in Chapel Hill. It is available for Spring and Fall Ingathering, upon request to the U.T.O. 
Secretary.

Message for the Episcopal Churchwomen's Yearbook — 1978-79 
from the Right Reverend Thomas A. Fraser 

Bishop of the Diocese of North Carolina 



The Episcopal Churchwomen of the Diocese of North Carolina have slowly rediscovered 
themselves and the fruition of this rediscovery comes through to me as a strong determination 
and commitment to the Episcopal Churchwomen and to their work in and through the 
Church. 

It is a joy to see this growth and development which is the result of the leadership of the 
women at all levels, the parish president and her officers, and the diocesan president and 
her officers. I rejoice over this development and the diocese is stronger for their presence. 

This does not infer that the Episcopal Churchwomen have gone back to any of the old 
concepts of the ECW . What it does mean is that they have moved forward into a contemporary 
world with a contemporary program and are assuming their position not only among the 
Women of the Church but in the decision-making processes of their parishes and vestries. 

Carry on! My best wishes to you. The whole Church and the Diocese are benefiting from 
your renewed strength and vigor. 

Faithfully, Your Bishop 



PRAYERS 



RENEWAL 
Almighty God, by whose Holy Spirit your children are led to acknowledge Jesus Christ 
as Lord and Savior; grant that this same Spirit may so dwell in us that we may be daily 
renewed, and manifest in our lives the Love that reaches out in blessing to all people. 
Empower us to help build up your Kingdom on earth to your honor and glory. We ask this, 
gracious Father, in the name of your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

GUIDANCE 
Direct us, O Lord, in all our doings, with Thy most gracious favor and further us with 
Thy continual help; that in all our works begun, continued and ended in Thee, we may 
glorify Thy Holy Name, and finally, by Thy mercy, obtain everlasting life; through Jesus 
Christ our Lord. Amen. 

EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 

Almighty God, our heavenly Father, bless we pray Thee, our work for the extension 
of Thy Kingdom, and make us so thankful for the precious gift to us of Thy beloved Son, 
that we may pray fervently, labor diligently, and give liberally to make Him known to 
all nations as their Saviour and their King through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Almighty God, whose love reacheth unto the world's end, and who didst send Thy 
blessed Son to redeem all mankind, help us, we pray Thee, so to reveal Thy love in prayer 
and work and stewardship, that by Thy spirit all nations and people may be baptized into 
one body, even as all are redeemed by one Saviour; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

MISSIONS 
Almighty God, help us we pray Thee, to shed abroad the light of Thy church in all the 
world. Give us greater zeal for Thy Kingdom, that we may offer abundantly our prayers, 
our work, and our gifts; so that the earth may be filled with the knowledge of Thy glory, 
as the waters cover the sea, through Thy Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

CHRISTIAN SOCIAL RELATIONS 
Send us, O God, as Thy messengers to hearts without a home, to lives without love, to 
the crowds without a guide. Send us to the children whom none have blessed, to the 
famished whom none have visited, to the fallen whom none have lifted, to the bereaved 
whom none have comforted. Kindle Thy flame on the altars of our hearts, that others 
may be warmed thereby; causing Thy light to shine in our souls, that others may see the 
way; keep our sympathies and insight ready, our wills keen, our hands quick to help our 
brothers in their need; for Christ's sake. Amen. 

UNITED THANK OFFERING 

O God, who art the hope of all peoples everywhere, we thank Thee for the outpourings 
of love and generosity which have enabled us to respond to some of the world's needs in 
places far and near; guide us as we face changing times and new frontiers; keep our hearts 
thankful and our vision clear as we work to fulfill our vocation and ministry as members 
of the body of thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Accept, O Father, this joyful sacrifice of thanksgiving and praise, and bless these gifts 
to the setting forward of Thy Kingdom; that as we have gratefully received the benefits 
Thy bounty has bestowed, so we may cheerfully share them with Thy children in all the 
world; for His sake whose life and death and rising to life again were a song of praise to 
Thee, O Thou Most Holy, our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen. 

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 
O God, who has sent Thy beloved Son to be unto us the Way, the Truth and the Life; grant 
that we, looking unto Him may set forward the teaching power of Thy Church, to the nurture 
of Thy children, the increase of Thy Kingdom and the glory of Thy Son, Jesus Christ our 
Lord. Amen. 

DIOCESAN MISSIONARIES 
O Lord and Heavenly Father, without whom we can do no good thing, but with whose 
help even Thy little ones go forth as the mighty, we beseech Thee to prosper the work of 



all Thy missionaries, wherever they may be (and especially the work of Thy servant . . . .) 
Grant them the wisdom to know and the strength to do Thy will, and bless them with 
the hope and consolation of Thy heavenly promises, for the sake of Thy Son, Our Saviour, 
Jesus Christ. Amen. 

COLLEGE WORK AND CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES 
We pray, O Lord, for guidance as we search for laborers for Thy harvest. May we 
remember that whatever our calling, it may be directed to Thee. Bless teachers, students, 
and chaplains at all institutions of learning. Open our eyes that we may find and encourage 
the right young men and women for full time church work. In Jesus' name. Amen. 

THE CHURCH PERIODICAL CLUB 
O Lord Jesus Christ, Who art the Light of the World, pour out, we beseech Thee, upon all 
Thy servants Thy Holy Spirit of Wisdom and understanding that they may know the hope 
of Thy calling, the riches of Thine inheritance in the saints, and the greatness of Thy 
power to us who believe. More especially we pray Thee to direct and prosper the Church 
Periodical Club that in all its prayer and labor it may be enabled to make the light of Thy 
glory shine forth in the dark places of the earth. And do Thou of Thy mercy and grace 
establish Thy Church in the truth of Thy Gospel, who livest and reignest with the Father 
and the Holy Spirit ever One God, world without end. Amen. 

USE BEFORE AND AT THE TIME OF THE ELECTION OF OFFICERS 
O Holy Spirit, Whose guidance and inspiration alone can enable us to fulfill the Will of 
God, teach us, we pray Thee, the dignity of our work as churchwomen, and give us grace 
to choose as our leaders those whom Thou dost call to Thy faithful service. To those so chosen 
give a spirit of reverence in the exercise of their office, and to all of us a deep sense of our 
obligation in the discharge of every duty, to do all to the glory of God through Jesus Christ 
our Lord. Amen. 

BENEDICTION 
May the blessings of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, rest 
upon us and upon all work and worship done in His name. May He give us light to guide 
us, courage to support us, and love to unite us, now and forevermore. Amen. 



SERVICE FOR INSTALLATION OF OFFICERS 
For Branch Use 

The Officers and Board shall advance to the Altar rail, then the President shall say: 

Reverend Sir, on behalf of the women of Church, I present to you the 

Officers of the Episcopal Churchwomen of this parish. 

RECTOR: Let us pray. 

Blessed Spirit of God, come to these Thy servants in all Thy fullness and power. 
Compass their minds with wisdom. Fire their wills with Thy might. Melt their hearts 
with Thy love. Through Thy grace make them wholly Thine until they are lost in Thee; 
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Will you accept the responsibilities placed upon you, and endeavor to discharge the 
duties of leadership to the best of your ability? 

OFFICERS: We will. 

RECTOR: Will you, through private prayer, Bible study, and regular attendance at the 
Holy Communion, seek to grow in knowledge of God and His purpose for you, and for 
the world? 

OFFICERS: We will. 

RECTOR: Will you strive by word and deed for the advancement of God's kingdom in 
this parish and beyond? 

OFFICERS: We will. 

RECTOR: Let us pray: 

Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, visit, we pray Thee, these officers of the Episcopal Church- 
women with Thy love. Enlighten their minds more and more with the light of the Gospel so 
that they may walk before Thee in humility, yet with a high sense of the great privilege 
of their responsibility. Save them from complacency and fear of new ways; and give them 
selflessness — patience — courage — gentleness — thankfulness — humor — faithfulness — en- 



thusiasm — wisdom. So, as they daily present themselves to Thee for renewal, may they be 
even stronger channels of Thy grace, and instruments of Thy will in the spiritual life of the 
Diocese. Amen. 

The Blessings of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, be upon you 
and remain with you for ever. Amen. 

SERVICE OF INSTALLATION OF 
OFFICERS FOR THE EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 

Let those who have been elected stand before the Bishop and then let him say: 
It is right and fitting that those who have been duly elected as Officers of the Episcopal 
Churchwomen, Diocese of North Carolina, should be formally received and admitted into 
their respective offices in your presence; and that we shoud ask the blessings of God upon 
them for their support and guidance in the performance of the duties which you have 
laid upon them. 

O Lord, save these Thy servants, 
Who put their trust in Thee, 
Send them help from the holy place, 
And evermore mightily defend them, 
O Lord, hear our prayer. 
And let our cry come unto Thee. 
Let us pray. 
Our Father . . . 

Direct us, O Lord, in all our doings, with Thy most gracious favour, and further us 
with Thy continual help; that in all our works begun, continued and ended in Thee, we may 
glorify Thy holy name, and finally by Thy mercy, obtain everlasting life; through Jesus 
Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Almighty God, the giver of all good gifts; give Thy Grace, we humbly beseech Thee, 
to these Thy servants who have been chosen to serve Thee in the special work for which 
they have been selected; grant unto them zeal and earnestness in the performance of their 
office; wisdom and strength to meet each day their task; and love in the doing of it; and 
give them vision to see their opportunities for service, to the glory of Thy great name and 
the benefit of Thy Holy Church, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Bless us, O God, with the vision of Thy Being and Thy Beauty, that in the strength 
of it we may work without haste and without rest; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

I receive and admit you to the office of Be faithful, zealous, sincere 

and humble in all your tasks, and may the Grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of 
God our Father and the guiding fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you evermore. Amen. 

BENEDICTION

worship, this day and always, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 



THE PRESIDENT'S ADDRESS 

96th Annual Meeting 

Episcopal Churchwomen, Diocese of North Carolina 

Chapel of the Cross, Chapel Hill, N.C. 

April 25, 26, 1979 

Bishop Fraser, Delegates, Visitors, Guests: 

Never have I been more sure of anything than I am of the fact that when God closes one door, 
He opens another. Its been that kind of year for me. For it has been a year of many frustrations, 
but they have taught me patience and brought me to a real awareness that God is working his 
purpose out, according to his timetable and in His way and not mine. 

As I review the year just ended, I am deeply conscious of a changing society and a changing 
institutional church. I view the present unrest in the church not with alarm, but with great 
expectations of good things to come. We need time to work through all of our current prob- 
lems, but I do believe that in their resolution we will emerge a stronger body of committed 
christian people. 

That the church is indeed influenced by changes in the secular world is nowhere more 
apparent than in the organization of the Episcopal Churchwomen who are noting a decline in 
membership and, in some places, a lack of interest on the part of women and little or no sup- 
port from the clergy. This is not a reflection on our programs nor any reason for us to have 
guilt feelings that perhaps we somehow have failed in our mission. Instead, let us acknowl- 
edge that competition from outside forces is greater than ever before. More women are ac- 
cepting employment outside of the home and many others are returning to school and surely 
the demand for volunteers for all kinds of good and worthwhile activities is tremendous. But 
the purpose of the Episcopal Churchwomen to provide additional opportunities for worship, 
study, fellowship, stewardship, and service within the church is still viable. Even as the 
church accepts a broader ministry of women, the fact remains, as Dr. Anne Harrison of the 
Episcopal Church Center has said, that "the Episcopal Churchwomen continues to be the most 
visible way for women to claim, affirm, and support their ministries as lay women in the 
church." A look at the women today who are in positions of leadership on the national and 
the diocesan levels in our church attests to the validity of her statement. The Episcopal Church- 
women provided their training ground. 

It is important for us to stay abreast or even ahead of what is happening in the church — to 
look to the future with the vision that has characterized the 96 years of joyful, faithful and 
productive service of the churchwomen of the Diocese of North Carolina in furthering the 
mission of the church. We can be thankful for the strong leadership of the able and courageous 
women who have preceded us. 

I accept the fact of changing times and I accept the challenge to keep our churchwomen a 
viable organization. It seems to me we are at a cross road; therefore, it is a good and pragmatic 
time for us to do an evaluation of our organization on the diocesan level and for you to do 
likewise and make a study of your Parish Episcopal Churchwomen. Following annual meet- 
ing, I will appoint a committee whose charge will be to study our structure and tenure, as 
well as our programs and outreach in an effort to determine how we may continue to be the 
strong institution we have always been in serving our Lord. I will request a progress report 
by next annual meeting. In response to a concern in this same area, I appointed an ad-hoc 
committee last year to study the relationship of working women to the Episcopal Church- 
women. Correspondence with organizations within the church on the national level quickly 
revealed that no information or help was available to us from them as we addressed this 
question, but they did express an interest in our findings. Mrs. Norwood Starling, chairman 
of the committee, advised me that the committee was not yet ready to give a final report on 
their findings. However, I feel it is safe to announce one trend that is conclusive from the 
returned survey: There are many working women who do want some kind of relationship 
with the churchwomen for education and for fellowship. But they desire this on a parochial 
level. This I feel provides a challenge to all branches to provide some type of activity for those 
who have difficulty in participating in the branches as they are presently structured. I would 
include not only women who are working, but students the single parent and mothers of small 
children as well. I have asked this committee to keep the structure and tenure committee 
informed of their findings and their conclusions. 



A look at the activities of the churchwomen for the past year reveals some exciting achieve- 
ments. My visits with so many of you this year affirm my belief in the creativity of the minis- 
try the Episcopal Churchwomen. We are the community gathered and the community sent. 
We indeed labor in the vineyard. The interest in continuing christian education is evidenced 
through your support of the fall seminar at Quail Roost Conference Center. It is hard to tell 
anyone what this kind of conference is really like. It is something one has to experience. The 
fact there are many who return year after year and the conference continues to be filled to 
capacity is proof that it is meeting a need for many churchwomen. Those who were fortunate 
enough to attend last year when Bishop Fraser led the seminar will long remember it. We are 
excited about plans for our 5th Annual Seminar this fall and we are delighted to announce 
that one of our church's most outstanding laymen, Mr. Dave Stoner of Jackson, Mississippi, 
will lead it for us as we explore "Christian Living — Abundant Living". The fact that our 
worship retreat had to be cancelled in January of this year for lack of response, opened the 
door for us to ask Mr. Stoner to come because it provided the additional funds necessary to 
have someone outside of the diocese as leader. 

Our spring planning days for the convocations were well attended and it gladdened the 
hearts of the board members to hear your remarks indicating that the workshops were really 
pertinent and helpful to you in planning the work of your branches for the coming year. The 
extra time in the actual workshop this spring seemed to be adequate and part of that magic 
formula we have been searching for in the planning of these days. 

Our financial condition continues to be sound. I am happy to note that the total amount of 
money handled by the treasurer or appropriate board member during 1977 was over $121,000. 
Branch pledges totaled $20,926 and is an area that does need additional funding by you. This 
fund makes possible the diocesan outreach of the churchwomen both overseas and at home. 
I urge you to consider an increase in your 1979 pledge to help support our scholarships, over- 
seas projects, work with migrants, and christian education. The cost of the yearbooks is rising 
faster than the galloping inflation that envelops the country and this, too, is underwritten 
by the pledge fund. In other areas your giving has been beautiful. We had the largest United 
Thank Offering we have ever had — $38,191.07 — an increase of $2,600 over last year. Our 
Church Periodical Club offering of $2,104.53 is our largest in recent years. Your increased giv- 
ing to the Missionary Christmas Gift Fund made it possible to send these dedicated people 
checks in the amount of $222.57. I congratulate your treasurers in sending more of your 
"Specials" monies through our diocesan treasurer and I look for even greater cooperation in 
that area in the coming year. 

In light of the action taken by the diocesan convention in January, we will have no problem 
locating projects to fund over the next few years. Their approval of a $2,000,000 capital fund 
drive for a diocesan camp and conference center and for venture in mission places responsi- 
bility on us, not only as individuals, but also as organizations, to support this campaign in a 
positive and meaningful way. In formulating your budgets and allocating your bazaar monies, 
I urge your continuing support for this fund drive. I am serving on the Diocesan Education 
Committee for venture in mission and when plans for participation in venture are completed, 
I will advise you of the projects and how to channel your monies for this program. Funds 
may now be sent for the camp and conference center through our ECW Diocesan Treasurer 
for forwarding to Mr. Michael Schenck. A memorial fund for the camp and conference center 
has been established. Anyone desiring to send a memorial or to honor someone, may send 
this to Mr. Schenck, Diocesan House, and he will acknowledge with a letter or card to the 
family. 

There have been many rewarding experiences for me this year as your president. I repre- 
sented you at the ordination service for a new priest and a new deacon last June at Calvary 
Church, Tarboro and this was an historic occasion: it was the first time the president of the 
churchwomen had been invited to read a lesson in the service. I attended an evangelism and 
church growth conference at Kanuga as part of the diocesan team and I have been your repre- 
sentative at the venture in mission meetings held during the past year. When the Rev. Pauli 
Murray celebrated her first eucharist I was privileged to be in the congregation in the Old 
Chapel here at the Chapel of the Cross — the place where her grandmother was baptized as a 
slave. One of the great joys has been visiting so many branches and getting to know so many 
Episcopal churchwomen. Since becoming president, I have spoken once or twice nearly every 
month to one of the branches and in addition have consulted with several branch executive 
boards who are in the process of reorganizing, reactivating or revitalizing their local branches. 

The theme for our 96th meeting, "Go and join the laborers in the vineyard", is a charge we as 



church women accept. Our understanding of mission and ministry through the years has been 
responsible for much of the outreach of the church. In some parishes, we have been the only 
ones reaching out to others. It seems appropriate to gather together all of our resources and 
have a diocesan-wide "show and tell and share" day. That is what the resource fair proposes 
to do. It is a way to show the creative and exciting ways women use their talents in serving 
our Lord. I hope you will be delighted with this feature of annual meeting. The total program 
has been designed in an effort to give you new directions for your labor in our Lord's vineyard. 
Thank you for the privilege of serving as your president. With your continuing interest, 
love and support, I look with great anticipation to next year, secure in the knowledge that 
we are about our Father's business.

concerned. 

The Rev. Barry Kramer, new Diocesan Missioner to the Deaf outlined ways his ministry

10 



Mr. James Austin, Director of Hospital Hospitality House, a project of St. Timothy's, 
Winston-Salem, reported on this guest-house accommodation for persons who are staying in 
the city for hospital treatment or to be near family members receiving treatment. He 
called upon Episcopalians to "get out of the stained glass bubble" and answer this special 
need in many communities. 

Mrs. Evans introduced the next facet of the program on the theme of Opportunities for 
Continuing Education in our own Diocese. Mrs. W. G. Long announced the Fall Seminar at 
Quail Roost Conference Center, on the topic "Christian Living — Abundant Living," 
September 25-27th. The leader will be Dave Stoner of Jackson, Miss., and the Rev. Charles J. 
Cook, of the Chapel of the Cross, Chapel Hill will serve as Chaplain. 

The Rev. Robert Lee Sessum, Diocesan Education and Training Program Chairman, spoke 
on the training opportunities available for laity and scholarship assistance for various con- 
ferences. He welcomed scholarship applications for a seminar on Education for Ministry at 
the University of the South and for Kanuga. A local four-day workshop for those interested 
in Christian Education in this diocese will be held in July or August 1979 at St. Mary's College. 

Mr. Frank Ballard, Promotion Director for Kanuga Camps and Conferences, announced 
topical seminars and workshops to be held at Kanuga in Summer 1978. 

An enthusiastic introduction to a report on the new Camp and Conference Center plans was 
given by Mrs. Evans. The Rev. Jim Abbott, chairman of the Committee, and the Rev. Wilson 
Carter, one of its able members, then told the new Conference Center story by word and slide 
presentation and announced that its funding will be solicited in a capital funds drive which 
will bring it to reality. 

Announcements were made of the Episcopal Book Store presence in the parish house as 
well as the Educational Committee display. The Resource Fair, highlighting the work of the 
Branches and giving evidence of their unique ideas, talents, and labor in the vineyard was 
opened in the Parish Hall following the first session. 

The session was recessed at 4:30 p.m., after the singing of Hymn 261, "O Sion Haste." 

At six thirty p.m. dinner was served at the Carolina Inn. This was followed by a service of 
evening worship at the Chapel of the Cross. The service was planned by the Diocesan 
Liturgical Commission, the Rev. Uly Gooch, Chairman. The Celebrant was Bishop Fraser 
and the sermon was delivered by the Rt. Rev. John Elbridge Hines, former Presiding Bishop 
of the Protestant Episcopal Church, USA. The United Thank Offering was presented by rep- 
resentatives from the Branches in the same way it is presented at the Triennial Meeting. Fol- 
lowing Bishop Hines' moving words celebrating the importance of the work of women in the 
Church and in the vineyard, Bishop Fraser celebrated The Holy Eucharist. 



Session II 

Mrs. Evans convened the second session at 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday, April 26th. Following 
the singing of Hymn No. 301, "Immortal, Invisible, God Only Wise," the Rev. Peter Lee gave 
the opening prayers. 

Bishop Fraser brought a message of encouragement and praise for the work of the women, 
calling them to go forth in new ways to serve the Lord in the Ministry of the Laity. 

Mrs. Evans called upon Mrs. Willie J. Long, chairman of the Committee to Study Delegate 
Representation for the following report which was requested by the 95th Annual Meeting: 

The Committee to Study the Problem of Delegate Representation to Annual Meeting feels 
it must identify the membership of the Episcopal Churchwomen of the Diocese of North 
Carolina and reports its findings and conclusions as follows: 

1. The purpose of the Episcopal Churchwomen as contained in Article II is: "The purpose of 
this organization shall be to enable Episcopal Churchwomen in the Diocese of North 
Carolina — through worship, study, fellowship, and service — to share more fully in the 
mission of the whole Church." 

2. There are many large parishes in this Diocese with a small percentage of women mem- 
bers participating actively in the meetings of the parish Branch of the Episcopal Church- 
women, but often a much larger percentage active in the work of the Branch such as 
Christian Social Relations, Missions and the United Thank Offering. 

3. There are many small parishes with a large percentage of women members participating 
fully in the meetings and activities of the Episcopal Churchwomen's Branch. 

4. Membership in the Branch Episcopal Churchwomen'is not based on individual pledg- 
ing. 



11 



We therefore feel that every woman member of the parish or mission is a member of her 
Episcopal Churchwomen's Branch. 

The Committee made observations about the purpose of Annual Meeting and prepared a 
recommendation for delegate representation from the Branches to Annual Meeting. 

1. The Committee feels the Annual Meeting of the Episcopal Churchwomen of the Diocese 
of North Carolina meets to conduct the business of the Churchwomen and to stimulate 
and encourage interest and participation of all women of the Diocese in the program of 
the Episcopal Churchwomen. 

2. The Committee notes that the change in By-law #3 as adopted in 1976 which states 
in part that "each Branch may be represented by the President and two other delegates 
(appointed by the President or elected by the Branch), each having a vote. . ." had little 
effect on the number of women attending the 1977 Annual Meeting following its 
adoption. 

3. It is desirable to encourage large numbers of Episcopal Churchwomen to attend Annual 
Meeting so that these women may more effectively carry the enthusiasm and spirit of 
Annual Meeting along with the business of the Meeting, back to the local Branch. 

4. The Committee notes that the North Carolina Diocesan Convention has a set number of 
delegates from parishes and missions, no matter how large or small the parish or mission; 
the National Church's General Convention also has a set number of delegates from each 
Diocese, no matter how large or small the Diocese. We therefore feel it fair to use a similar 
system. 

To encourage more participation in Annual Meeting the Committee recommends that By- 
law #3 read as follows: 

"Each Branch may be represented by the President and one to four other delegates (ap- 
pointed by the President or elected by the Branch), each having a vote. Each Branch may also 
be represented by one to four alternates with voice and no vote. A Branch to have voting 
privileges must have paid a pledge to the Diocesan Churchwomen's Budget for the preceding 
year." 

COMMITTEE MEMBERS: 

Mrs. W. ]. Long, Jr., Chairman, All Saint's, Roanoke Rapids 

Mrs. Blair Bryan, Christ Church, Charlotte 

Mrs. James Hill, St. Michael's, Raleigh 

Mrs. M. T. Ruffin, Jr., Calvary, Tarboro 

Mrs. W. H. R. Jackson, St. Mark's, Roxboro 

Mrs. Gerald Barrett, Chapel of the Cross, Chapel Hill 

Mrs. Long moved adoption of the change as recommended by the Committee and approved 
by the Executive Board. This was seconded by Mrs. Edwin Hamshar, and was passed. 

Mrs. Evans announced that the next business was the election of officers. The slate having 
been presented on the previous day, and there being no nominations from the floor at that 
time, was approved. 

President-elect — Mrs. Tyndall Harris 

Secretary of Christian Social Relations — Mrs. Blair Bryan 

Secretary of Missions — Mrs. Oscar W. Cranz 

Mrs. Evans announced that it was necessary to fill two vacancies on the Executive Board. 
In accordance with the Constitution, the Nominating Committee presented nominees for 
these positions, and the Executive Board concurred, electing the following persons to fill the 
unexpired terms: 

United Thank Offering (two-year unexpired term) — Mrs. Eugene Motsinger 
Promotion Secretary (one-year unexpired term) — Mrs. Melvin Finch 

Tellers distributed ballots for the election of delegates to Triennial. Mrs. Evans explained 
that the Executive Board had voted to send four delegates to the 1979 Triennial in Denver. 
The following delegates and alternates were elected: 

Delegates to Triennial: Mrs. Tyndall Harris Ms. Mary Hawkins 

Mrs. Gerald Barrett Mrs. Eugene Motsinger, Jr. 



Alternates to Triennial: Mrs. C. Leslie Sweeney, Jr. Mrs. Blair Bryan

Mrs. John P. McManus, Treasurer, presented the budget as proposed by the Finance Com- 
mittee. The 1977 financial report was accepted as presented upon motion by Mrs. McManus. 
Her motion for the disbursement of the 1977 surplus was approved and was allocated as 
follows: $423.22 for the ECW Yearbook; $250.00 for the Discretionary Fund of the incoming 
Bishop Co-adjutor; and $250.00 to the ECW Contingency Fund (increasing cost of postage and 
supplies). The unallocated funds of $7,500.00 for the 1978 budget, inside and outside the 
Diocese, were adopted on motion of the Treasurer. (See detail on page 24). The proposed 1979 
budget for outside and inside the diocese and for administration, was presented in the 
amount of $21,000.00 and was accepted upon motion of the Treasurer (See detail on page 25). 
Mrs. McManus' motion that the Epiphany Offering for 1979 be sent to the Scholarship Fund, 
St. Mary's School for Indian Girls, Springfield, South Dakota, as recommended by the Finance 
Committee and approved by the Executive Board, was seconded and passed. 

Mrs. John W. S. Davis, chairman of the Resolutions Committee, presented the following 
resolutions: 

RESOLUTION ON FUNDING THE TRIENNIAL MEETING 

Whereas, the delegates to the 1976 Triennial Meeting in Minneapolis voted overwhelmingly to 
continue these meetings, convinced that they broaden the vision of those in attendance 
by offering spiritual renewal, creative programming, outreach ideas, and an opportunity 
to see the whole church in action,, thereby strengthening the church "back home" where 
these ideas are implemented, and 

Whereas, the work of the women provides a valuable training ground for lay leadership as a 
resource to the whole church, and 

Whereas, the Episcopal Churchwomen continues to be the most visible way for women to 
claim, affirm and support their ministries as lay women in the church, and 

Whereas, prior to 1973 a significant portion of the expenses for the Triennial Meeting were 
met by the Executive Council because the planning body (the General Division of Women's 
Work or its successor, the Committee for Women) was funded by the Executive Council 
budget, and 

Whereas, since 1973 the only funds currently available for planning and implementing the 
Triennial Meeting are a share of the income from the Wright Legacy, and the income from 
the Legacy Income Account, which have proved to be inadequate, now therefore, be it 

RESOLVED THAT DELEGATES TO THE 96TH ANNUAL MEETING OF THE EPISCOPAL 
CHURCHWOMEN OF THE DIOCESE OF NORTH CAROLINA request the Executive 
Council to institute a policy whereby future Triennial expenses are included as a part of the 
General Convention budget by funding those expenses of the Triennial Meeting not covered 
by available income from other sources, the precise amount to be negotiated. 
Mrs. Davis moved its adoption and it was passed. 

RESOLUTION CONCERNING THE 1928 BOOK OF COMMON PRAYER 

Whereas, we, the Episcopal Churchwomen of the Diocese of North Carolina, express a deep 

and abiding love for the Holy Catholic Church, and 
Whereas, we are desirous for continued peace and unity within the Church, and 
Whereas, many communicants are disturbed over the change in working order of services, 

and theology in the Proposed Book of Prayer, and 
Whereas, the Presiding Bishop, the Right Reverend John N. Allin, has stated that "If loyal, 

devout people want to worship with the old Prayer Book, they should not be denied it," 

therefore, be it 
Resolved that the Episcopal Churchwomen, out of love for the Holy Catholic Church and our 

desire for peace and unity within it, request the Deputies to the General Convention from 

the Diocese of North Carolina to respect the wish of the Presiding Bishop to keep the 1928 

Book of Common Prayer as alternative to the Proposed Book of Prayer. 

Mrs. Davis explained that this resolution was reported out of Committee without prejudice 
last year. It was consequently moved for adoption and seconded and discussed before being 
postponed for action by the 1978 Annual Meeting. Since there was no discussion from the 
floor at this time, the vote was called and the resolution was adopted. 

Mrs. Evans noted a change in the presentations from Diocesan institutions. Starting with 
this 1978 meeting, and for the next four years, time will be allowed for an in-depth report from 
one of the institutions, and only brief reports will be given by the others. St. Mary's College 
was highlighted this year. Mr. John Rice, president of the college, spoke about the unique 



13 



witness of St. Mary's in the educational community: it is the sole Junior Episcopal women's 
college in the nation. He predicted qualitative and quantitative growth in the future. 

Mrs. Earl Eisenhart, Jr., At-large Representative to the United Thank Offering Committee, 
from Bethesda, Maryland, gave a stirring talk on the importance of UTO in the individual 
life. "Coins are the symbols," she said, "but they are manna too." She reported that grants 
disbursed totaled over lVz millions in 1977. 

The Rev. Nichols White, Associate Rector of Christ Church, Charlotte, recently appointed 
Diocesan Chairman of the Venture in Mission Education Committee, spoke on planning for 
the educational program and the capital funds drive to be undertaken. He sees the educational 
process as the main job. $600,000 is the target amount which has been set forth for Venture 
in Mission. 

Mrs. Warwick Aiken reported for the Courtesy Committee and presented its resolution 
of thanks. 

Mrs. Evans announced that the Executive Board had accepted the invitation from St. Luke's, 
Salisbury, to host the 97th Annual Meeting of the Episcopal Churchwomen, May 1 and 2, 
1979. She also reported that the United Thank Offering rendered at the Evening Worship 
Service was $298.42. 

Closing prayers and benediction were preceded by the installation of officers by the 
Venerable Robert M. Davis, Archdeacon and Canon to the Ordinary. 

After the singing of Hymn 276, "Now Thank We All Our God," the Annual Meeting was 
adjourned. 

Respectfully submitted, 



Marion C. Salinger 
(Mrs. Herman Salinger) 
Secretary 



REPORT OF THE COURTESY COMMITTEE 

Bishop Fraser, Bishop Hines, Mrs. Evans, members of the clergy, delegates and visitors 
to the Ninety-Sixth Annual Meeting of the Episcopal Churchwomen of the Diocese of North 
Carolina meeting in Chapel Hill at the Chapel of the Cross: 

Our coming together here in beautiful Chapel Hill amid the invigorating showers of spring 
has been an occasion of joy and blessing to us all. We have gained here, and will carry back to 
our parishes, a renewed sense of the urgency and Tightness and necessity of our tasks as serv- 
ants of our Lord Jesus Christ, even as the burgeoning flowers and trees we see about us 
push urgently toward fulfilling their appointed role in God's creation. 

It is with warm gratitude that we acknowledge the faithful, gracious, and devoted leader- 
ship of Scott Evans, and look forward to another year of enjoying her tenure as our president. 

We have been filled with inspiration by the many excellent speakers — and, thanks to Bishop 
Hines, will we ever hold an onion again without a thought of our responsibility to share our 
faith and our substance with a world in need all around us? 

We have particularly enjoyed the display of creative ideas in the Resource Fair, and ap- 
preciate those who spent time and energy so freely to make it a reality. 

Our heartfelt thanks go to the hospitable and tireless ladies of the Chapel of the Cross, 
especially to their president, Mrs. James D. Folds, and her chairman, Mrs. Tyndall Harris and 
Mrs. Gerald Barrett and also to the rectors, the Rev. Mr. Lee and the Rev. Mr. Cook, as well as 
the Rev. Robert Davis for his special part, and also those responsible for the glorious music; 
and finally to all those of both the Chapel of the Cross and the Church of the Holy Family 
who labored to feed us to make us feel so at home in every way. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Mrs. Warwick Aiken, Jr. 
Mrs. Henry H. Chambless 
Mrs. James P. Smith

Episcopal Churchwomen 
Diocese of North Carolina 

We have examined the statement of assets, liabilities and fund balances of Episcopal 
Churchwomen, Diocese of North Carolina, as of December 31, 1977 and the related statement 
of changes in fund balances for the year then ended. Char examination was made in accord- 
ance with generally accepted auditing standards, and accordingly included such tests of the 
accounting records and such other auditing procedures as we considered necessary in the cir- 
cumstances. As to funds received, our examination was limited to recorded receipts. 

In our opinion the accompanying statement of assets, liabilities and fund balances and the 
related statement of changes in fund balances present fairly the financial position of Episcopal 
Churchwomen, Diocese of North Carolina as of December 31, 1977 and the results of its 
operations for the year then ended, in conformity with generally accepted accounting prin- 
ciples applied on a basis consistent with that of the preceding year. The current year's supple- 
mentary data included in Schedule 1 have been subjected to the same auditing procedures 
and, in our opinion, are stated fairly in all material respects when considered in conjunction 
with the basic financial statements as a whole.

provinces in the United States. The Diocese of North Carolina belongs to the Fourth Pro- 
vince, known as the Sewanee Province. The work of the province is educational and pro- 
motional. 

Diocese: A group of parishes and missions under the jurisdiction of a Bishop. The Diocese of 
North Carolina has 63 parishes and 48 missions. See the Constitution and By-Laws in 
this Yearbook for the organization of the Episcopal Churchwomen in this Diocese. 

Convocation: A number of parishes and missions within a given area in a diocese. There 
are five convocations in the Diocese of North Carolina. See the Constitution, Article X, in

Parish and Mission: A fellowship of redeemed people doing God's work under the leadership 
and direction of a priest. A parish is self-supporting, whereas a mission receives support 
from the diocese. 

The organization of Episcopal Churchwomen in a parish or mission is known as a Branch 
and is patterned after the Diocesan organization. The membership is composed of commu- 
nicants who choose to be active members. The structure should be simple and flexible, de- 
pending on the size, interests, and needs of the group. 

In large parishes the Branch may be divided into smaller groups known as Chapters. The 
Chapters may have officers corresponding to those of the Branch.

EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 
History 

The first organized women's groups within the Church were called "Female Missionary 
Societies," as their purpose was to raise money for the support of missionaries. In 1871 
General Convention recommended that the women of the Church, in every parish and mis- 
sion in the land, be organized under the name of the "Woman's Auxiliary to the Board of 
Missions." This was done in 1872 and for many years the chief function of organized women's 
groups of the Church was to raise money for the support of the missionary work of the Church. 

When the Church reorganized its administration and the National Council was set up in 
1919, it asked that the Woman's Auxiliary, instead of being auxiliary only to the Board of Mis- 
sions, be made "The Woman's Auxiliary to the National Council of the Protestant Episcopal 
Church in the United States of America." This change widened and increased the responsi- 
bilities and opportunities open to the women of the Church. 

In recognition of the fact that women were a part of the Church, not just an auxiliary to it, 
in 1958 National Council created the General Division of Women's Work, the executive body 
on the national level, representing all of the work of all the women of the Church. 

Following this action the Triennial Meeting recommended "Episcopal Churchwomen" as 

the designation for the women of a diocese, and "The Women of Church", as 

the name in the parish. 

The history of women's work in the Diocese of North Carolina dates back to 1881 when the 
Diocese of North Carolina was the whole area of the state. The Rt. Rev. Theodore Lyman, 
Bishop of the Diocese, asked Mrs. John Wilkes of Charlotte to form a Diocesan organization 
of Woman's Auxiliary branches. In 1882 at the Diocesan Convention in Tarboro, representa- 
tives from six branches with a total membership of one hundred were organized as the 
Woman's Auxiliary of the Diocese of North Carolina to the Board of Missions, thereby be- 
coming one of twenty-six organized in the national church prior to 1883. 

In April 1959 at the Annual Meeting in Winston-Salem, a resolution was adopted changing 
the name of the organization to "Episcopal Churchwomen of the Diocese of North Caro- 
lina." It was suggested that, for uniformity, parish branches be known as "Episcopal Church- 
women of Parish".

tional life of your parish. 

2. Seek to enrich your own spiritual depth by following a Rule of Life, such as daily prayer 
and devotional reading, meditation and Bible study, daily surrender of self to God to be used 
as a channel for His service, and regular reded ication to Christ through the Holy Communion. 

3. Build up your own personal devotional library of prayers, books, pamplets, poems, 
hymns and tapes. 

RESPONSIBILITIES AS BRANCH SECRETARY 

You have been assigned a particular sphere of work. You should not let it become separated 
from the work of the others on the Board. All work of the women should be at the direction of 
the Holy Spirit. 

Keep your Board ever mindful of its reason for being, by seeing that worship is an in- 
tegral part of all planning and work. It would be well to allow for a moment of prayer, either 
silent or oral , before taking final action on any matter, in order that each member may seek our 
Lord's will. The few minutes required for this practice could transform a group to being "the 
body of Christ" in a very real sense. 

1. Lead the devotions at the Board meetings or arrange for someone else to do so. 

2. Plan, with the Devotional Life Chairman in each chapter, a devotion related to the study 
program. 

3. Plan Quiet Days, Retreats, Schools of Prayer, Corporate Communions, World Day of

MISSIONS 

Mrs. Oscar Cranz 
3808 Bonward Drive, Charlotte, N.C. 

The purpose of this office is to encourage churchwomen to participate in the world- 
wide mission of the Church. 

Information and suggestions to help attain this purpose follow. 

1. Pray daily for the world-wide mission of the Church. 

2. A good policy is to divide the Branch budget 50% inside the parish and 50% outside. 
Give to missions through your Diocesan pledge. This will enable the churchwomen on the 
Diocesan level to accept larger priority projects, thereby accomplishing more in a given area. 
Suggested projects will be sent upon request. 

3. Remember especially the missionaries from the Diocese of North Carolina. Pray for 
them by name and write to them periodically. Participate in the Missionary Christmas 
Gift for both active and retired missionaries from this Diocese. The total money collected is 
divided equally among them. Please see that the check is made payable to Mrs. Oscar 
Cranz, Secretary (see above address) and mailed to her by NOVEMBER 15. 

4. By action of the 1978 Annual Meeting, the 1979 Epiphany offering will go to the Scholar- 
ship Fund, St. Mary's School, Springfield, South Dakota. Please encourage your branch to 
seriously consider participating in this offering. Send it to the Diocesan Treasurer. 

5. Many branches have expressed interest in assigning a specific missionary to each 
convocation. The purpose is to concentrate their monies, prayers etc. on one or two people 
and become more closely involved with them. 

Below are the 1978-1979 assignments. 
NORTHEAST — Jocelyn Gordon, Sister Adelaide 
CENTRAL— The Rev. Mark Boesser, Miss Rachel Wolff 
NORTHWEST — Mrs. Harvey Simmonds, Miss Catherine Jones 
SOUTHWEST — Mrs. Henry Chapmen, The Rev. James Fortune 
SANDHILLS— Stuart and Everall Peele 



32 



6. Remember that mission begins at home and extends throughout the world. Christian 
Social Relations, United Thank Offering, Church Periodical Club, College Work, and 
Missions are inseparable in that each offers opportunities for mission and ministry to 
people. Every churchwoman can participate. Please do your part to make this a successful 
year.

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

Mrs. Thomas J. Randall 
923 W. Horah Street, Salisbury 28144 

"And the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the Spirit of Wisdom and Understand- 
ing, the Spirit of Counsel and Might, the Spirit of Knowledge and the fear of the Lord." 
This moving passage from Isaiah 11:2 applies not only at Confirmation, but to us as concerned 
leaders in Christian Education as we venture into the basic interests and needs of our lives 
as well as of others in the world today. There are many sources for what wisdom we need and 
we should explore them in many ways. Attendance at the Spring Workshops will have pro- 
vided many of us with ideas for study, books to order and to consider, and suggestions from 
other branches for successful programs. Just the idea of congenial fellowship among 



33 



Episcopal women at this time of meditation and communion can be inspiring for our 
future experience. If I or any of the Diocesan officers can provide you with any help with 
themes on Missions, Christian Social Relations, etc., please don't hesitate to call on us. 
Participation in the Annual Conference whether at Kanuga or the Seminar at Quail Roost 
in Durham, N. C. is also recommended because new ideas and formats are often generated 
here. This opportunity for learning and relaxing in a beautiful setting can be invaluable. 

A theme for your new year may be developed in many ways and we should remember 
that books are not our sole resource — people, communities, multi-media, church and learn- 
ing institutions are also at our fingertips when we look for ways to present some facet of 
Christian Education. It is also important to remember that programs need not be a static 
experience each year — they can be varied as women are varied and presented in different 
ways by the individual speaker or by panel discussion, by them teaching (perhaps by one 
Branch member and one outsider from the community) or by round robin contributions. 
Once you have selected your program topic, spend some time planning an unusual form 
of presentation. 

Keep in touch with new books and new ideas by reading faithfully your copies of The 
Episcopalian, The Living Church, and The Churchman. When you go to Kanuga, 
Quail Roost, Richmond or Atlanta remember to browse in the appropriate bookstores 
for new publications. Just don't neglect taking a reading of what your women really 
need and want — some may want to make in-depth studies of certain books of the Bible 
once again or an understanding of charismatic movements; some may want Episcopal 
Church history and the current trends of today. Circulate not only in bookstores and 
libraries but among your women, to know them and find direction for what we all need in 
furthering our concern for others — hopefully in renewing our commitment together in faith 
and love of God and his son Jesus Christ! 

I am listing some books which will be helpful in program planning and some which I 
commend for your reading pleasure and others for you spiritual growth.

CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES AND COLLEGE WORK 

Mrs. Don Blanton 
Country Club Circle, Lexington, N.C. 27292 

We believe that every one embodies a unique personal ministry. It is the purpose of this 
office to help churchwomen find their personal ministry and encourage them to pursue it. 

Another duty of our office is to maintain a relationship with Episcopal students as they 
leave home to broaden their lives. 

CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES 

1. Know ourselves better through prayer and study. 

2. Explore our own interests, talents and gifts; then own, acclaim and use them! 

3. Remind each other that women are members of the "Ministry of the Laity." 

4. Encourage the knowledge that ministry is not confined to the church alone. 

5. Support all women in their quest for selfhood and service. 

6. Affirm our womanhood. 

7. Take comfort in knowing that: "anytime I am helping other people in any way I am 
ministering to them; I am showing them God's love through my action and my being." 

COLLEGE WORK 

The college work section of this office seeks to maintain a relationship with Episcopal stu- 
dents. 

1. Students who are away at college — 

a. Keep in touch with students. Make a file on each student and send birthday, Christ- 
mas, and Easter cards, newsletters, etc. 



35 



b. Arrange get-together or honor the students at a regular church occasion such as a 
coffee hour after church service. 

c. Plan a Sunday for college students and use them as acolytes, lay readers and ushers. 

2. Students who come to local colleges — 

a. Check with local colleges and determine what the relationship can be between 
Churchwomen and Episcopal students. 

b. Encourage students to be a part of church program. 

3. College chaplain will visit and explain their role on college campus. Invite a chaplain to 

speak at Churchwomen's meeting or plan a special church service for the 
presentation. 

PROMOTION 

Mrs. M. L. Finch 
2110 St. Mary's Street, Raleigh 27608 

The essential duty of the Diocesan Promotion Secretary is to promote the ideas and 
activities of the Episcopal Churchwomen. It is her duty to keep all churchwomen informed 
of things to come and to report on noteworthy activities which have taken place. She is 
available to assist branch officers in promoting individual programs as well as diocesan 
sponsored ones. The effectiveness of this job depends somewhat on her being informed 
by local churchwomen about their endeavors. 

The Episcopal Churchwomen of North Carolina is a very vital organization offering many 
opportunities for spiritual growth to all its members and prospective members. Communi- 
cating this message is the task of all, but particularly the task of promotional workers. 
In keeping with this, the following suggestions are offered: 

1. Convocation Chairmen and Branch Presidents should be certain that someone is 
responsible for the work of informing the other members of what is going on in their organi- 
zations. 

2. Make effective use of your church bulletins and/or newsletters to inform members 
about coming events and activities. 

3. Assist other branch officers with your ideas and imagination in promoting the ECW 
and in promoting their respective programs. 

4. Establish a good relationship with your local press and solicit their aid in promoting 
your work. 

5. Inform other women in the Diocese of any activities or projects which you feel are out- 
standing by reporting them in- the North Carolina Churchman. 

6. Contact your Diocesan Secretary for any assistance she may be able to give you in 
carrying out the above suggestions. 

ALTAR WORK AND SERVICE OF EXCHANGE 

Mrs. Charles Shaffer 
716 Gimghoul Drive, Chapel Hill 27514 

Altar Work is rewarding and meaningful service in all of its phases. Anything done in 
God's service and to His Glory should be performed with love and to the best of our 
ability. Parishes have different needs and customs. No attempt will be made to standardize. 
The object is to increase the efficiency and devotion of each Guild in carrying out the 
wishes of the Rector. Our Lord accepted the ministry of faithful women during His earthly 
life. We pray that He accept and bless the work which our Guilds undertake in the care of their 
Sanctuaries. 

In the individual branches the Altar Guild Chairman is not always an officer of the 
ECW. In fact, there may not be a specific person to whom these responsibilities would be 
delegated. In such cases, I would appreciate those having access to this hand book assuring 
that the proper person, Rector or Altar Guild Chairman be given this information, so 
they may avail themselves of the services of this office. I encourage your correspondence 
on any help needed. 



36 



77ns office will provide help in: 

1. Setting up procedures for Altar work. 

2. Teaching the skills necessary for maintaining a Sacristy, and preparing for various 
Services of Worship. 

3. Specific hints and helps for the various housekeeping problems which arise. 

4. Encouraging more ladies to participate in the activities of the Guild, and those in the 
Guild to refresh their enthusiasm for their work. 

5. Suggestions for services which the Guilds may provide other than the traditional 
housekeeping duties. 

6. In circulating items not currently in use by one Parish to a Parish or Mission where 
there is a need. 

7. In obtaining printed aids such as books, catalogues for Altar needs. 

ALTAR GUILD PRAYERS 

For use before work: 

Almighty God, grant we beseech Thee, that we may handle Holy things with reverence, 
and perform our work with such faithfulness and devotion, that it may rise with acceptance 
before Thee and obtain Thy blessing; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

For use after work: 

O God, bless and accept the work of my hands and all who minister to Thee in the 
care and adornment of Thy Sanctuary. Bless and hallow them who love the beauty of Thy 
House, that Thy Holy Name may be glorified; through Jesus Christ, Our Lord. Amen.

CHURCH PERIODICAL CLUB 

Mrs. Wally Ausley 
215 Reynolds Road, Raleigh, N.C. 27609 

The Church Periodical Club, serving the ministry of the printed word since 1888, is the 
only organization in the Episcopal Church devoted solely to supplying free printed material 
to those who cannot otherwise obtain it. Its steadily expanding, adaptable program is unique 
among the churches in giving free materials to responsible recipients they themselves 
specify. It is supported by contributions and most of its work is done by volunteers. 

CPC functions on all levels, nationally, world-wide, locally — in parishes, communities, 
dioceses. Religious, educational, technical, recreational books, magazines, leaflets are pro- 
vided for the most remote places and for nearest neighbors. Needs that exceed local 
resources are referred to National Books Fund. 

This fund is directed by a committee of experienced volunteers, meeting to evaluate 
each request. Most are granted as far as funds permit. National Books Fund projects have 
financed a translation of the Prayer Book in Malay to giving medical journals to the 
stations served by the S. S. Hope. 

How can CPC become alive in your Parish? 

1. Pray for the work of CPC for guidance asking God to direct you in spreading the 
Good News with the printed word. 

2. Plan to publicize the work of CPC to all men, women and children in your parish by 
observing the first Sunday in October. (CPC Sunday) 

3. Plan to educate your parish on CPC Sunday in the importance of continuing to 
supply printed materials to people around the world. 

4. Use your parish bulletin and meetings in your parish to remind them of CPC Sunday in 
October. Use the CPC prayers at all services and meetings that week in your parish. 

In our Diocese, the CPC work is done through the Episcopal Churchwomen, 
headed by a Diocesan Director of CPC and carried out by CPC secretaries in the branches. 
The Secretary of Missions could also serve as CPC Secretary in those churches of small 
membership. 

NOTES: 

All contributions should be sent to the Diocesan Director of CPC. All contributions should 
be made by check payable to Church Periodical Club. Do not remit to the Diocesan Treasurer. 
Enclose a memo showing the source so proper credit can be given. 

When your branch or parish sends a check to the National Books Fund as a memorial 
or as a gift to a Seminarian, the CPC secretary should so inform the recipient of the memorial 
or gift.

PRESIDENT'S CROSS 

The engraved silver Celtic cross worn by the Diocesan President during her term of office 
was a gift of Mrs. Leslie Evans in 1956. She wore the cross during her administration as 
President of the Woman's Auxiliary and presented it to Mrs. T. P. Thomas at her installation at 
Annual Meeting, in the Church of the Good Shepherd, Raleigh, in 1958. The back of the cross 
bears the inscription: "President, Woman's Auxiliary, Diocese of North Carolina." 

PENDULA 

The pendula is worn by all Diocesan Past-Presidents in the IV Province. It is an oval of gold 
or silver, with a Chi-Rho symbol bearing seventeen stars on the crossbars. The stars represent 
the number of Diocese in the Province. The pendula is a gift to our Retiring Diocesan President 
by Dr. Philip DeWolfe, now of Florida, in memory of his mother, Elizabeth Owens DeWolfe. 
Dr. DeWolfe's wife, Anne, was a member of our Diocesan Executive Board in 1963 when the 
decision was made to give the pendula to retiring Diocesan Presidents. At that time North 
Carolina was the only Diocese in the Province which did not present one to its President. 
Through Dr. DeWolfe's generosity, all living Past-Presidents were presented with a pendula at 
Annual Meeting at St. Michael's Church, Raleigh, in 1963. Mrs. James L. Godfrey of Chapel 
Hill was the Diocesan President when this tradition was begun in our Diocese. 

ALMS BASIN 

The U.T.O. Alms Basin is made of silver and gold collected from all parishes in the Diocese of 
North Carolina; an idea conceived by Mrs. B. W. Roberts. Mrs. Brown Patterson designed the 
center seal made up of gold wedding rings, pins and crosses donated. Mr. Louis Glasier was 
the Ecclesiastical craftsman. It was dedicated by Bishop Penick at Annual Meeting, April 20, 
1955 in Chapel Hill. It is available for Spring and Fall Ingathering upon request to the U.T.O. 
Secretary.

Message for the Episcopal Churchwomen's Yearbook & 1979-80 
from the Right Reverend Thomas A. Fraser 

Bishop of the Diocese of North Carolina 



It was not too many years ago that there was talk that the Episcopal Churchwomen 
as an organization were on their way out. I do not know about the National Church, 
but I do know about the Diocese of North Carolina. It is very much alive! 

The Episcopal Churchwomen of this diocese have just completed what I feel to be 
one of the most exciting Annual Meetings that I have attended. The program, the 
worship, the involvement, the down-to-earth attitude as well as the substance of the 
reports indicate a group of contemporary women who are concerned about the mis- 
sion of the Church and they are willing to put their shoulders to the wheel to see that 
the job gets done. 

As I review the life of the diocese, it would be true to say that the Episcopal Church- 
women are becoming a real leaven in the loaf. They have their eyes on the target of 
commitment to the Christian Gospel and their ministry to make that Gospel relevant 
to each of us where we are today. 

Faithfully, Your Bishop 
Thomas A. Fraser 



IN MEMORIAM 



LEAH GRAVES PEOPLES 

Born: January 12, 1896 in Ashville, North Carolina 

Died: March 30, 1979 in Atlanta, Georgia, where she lived with her 

daughter in her last years. 



Resident of Oxford, North Carolina from 1926 to 1974, where she and 
her husband, Edward G. Peoples, were faithful communicants of St. 
Stephen's Episcopal Church and where she served as a member of the 
Board of the Richard H. Thornton Library. 

She is survived by two sons, Lt. Col. L. J. Peoples and Edward G. 
Peoples, Jr.; a daughter, Mrs. Gerald C. Osgood; a sister, Mrs. Margaret 
Graves Banister; nine grandchildren, and five great grandchildren. 

In the Episcopal Churchwomen, she was a loyal and loving worker, 
serving in her Branch as President and in all other offices. She served in 
the Diocese as Secretary of Christian Education, as Diocesan President in 
1944-45 and '46 and also as President during the unexpired term of Mrs. 
U. T. Homes in 1942-43. She was a delegate to three National Triennial 
Conventions for the Diocese. 

She served in the IV Province as the President of the Woman's Auxil- 
ary of the Province of Sewanee from 1951 to 1954 and as a member of the 
Department of Christian Education in 1953. 

In her term of office as President of the Diocesan Woman's Auxiliary 
during the war years, she worked to adapt the women's work in the 
church to the needs of the times of "assurance of the goodness, love, 
purpose, and power of God, and the confidence in the ultimate vicotry, 
which cometh from God." She also initiated Bishop Penick's Quiet 
Hour for the Executive Board before Annual Meeting, a tradition of most 
lasting consequence. She was a leader of the Women of the Church in 
support of the United Nations Charter. 

She was a beautiful lady. She has been described by her friends as 
pleasant, real, sincere, dear, and twinkle-eyed. Her keen sense of humor, 
her brave spirit and her warm intelligence were ever present in her path 
through life on this earth. 

Thanks be to God for His servant, Leah. With all the angels and arch- 
angels may she go from strength to strength in the life of perfect service 
in His heavenly Kingdom. 



PRAYERS 



RENEWAL 
Almighty God, by whose Holy Spirit your children are led to acknowledge Jesus Christ 
as Lord and Savior; grant that this same Spirit may so dwell in us that we may be daily 
renewed, and manifest in our lives the Love that reaches out in blessing to all people. 
Empower us to help build up your Kingdom on earth to your honor and glory. We ask this, 
gracious Father, in the name of your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

GUIDANCE 
Direct us, O Lord, in all our doings, with Thy most gracious favor and further us with 
Thy continual help; that in all our works begun, continued and ended in Thee, we may 
glorify Thy Holy Name, and finally, by Thy mercy, obtain everlasting life; through Jesus 
Christ our Lord. Amen. 

EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 

Almighty God, our heavenly Father, bless we pray Thee, our work for the extension 
of Thy Kingdom, and make us so thankful for the precious gift to us of Thy beloved Son, 
that we may pray fervently, labor diligently, and give liberally to make Him known to 
all nations as their Saviour and their King through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Almighty God, whose love reacheth unto the world's end, and who didst send Thy 
blessed Son to redeem all mankind, help us, we pray Thee, so to reveal Thy love in prayer 
and work and stewardship, that by Thy spirit all nations and people may be baptized into 
one body, even as all are redeemed by one Saviour; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

MISSIONS 
Almighty God, help us we pray Thee, to shed abroad the light of Thy church in all the 
world. Give us greater zeal for Thy Kingdom, that we may offer abundantly our prayers, 
our work, and our gifts; so that the earth may be filled with the knowledge of Thy glory, 
as the waters cover the sea, through Thy Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

CHRISTIAN SOCIAL RELATIONS 
Send us, O God, as Thy messengers to hearts without a home, to lives without love, to 
the crowds without a guide. Send us to the children whom none have blessed, to the 
famished whom none have visited, to the fallen whom none have lifted, to the bereaved 
whom none have comforted. Kindle Thy flame on the altars of our hearts, that others 
may be warmed thereby; causing Thy light to shine in our souls, that others may see the 
way; keep our sympathies and insight ready, our wills keen, our hands quick to help our 
brothers in their need; for Christ's sake. Amen. 

UNITED THANK OFFERING 

O God, who art the hope of all peoples everywhere, we thank Thee for the outpourings 
of love and generosity which have enabled us to respond to some of the world's needs in 
places far and near; guide us as we face changing times and new frontiers; keep our hearts 
thankful and our vision clear as we work to fulfill our vocation and ministry as members 
of the body of thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Accept, O Father, this joyful sacrifice of thanksgiving and praise, and bless these gifts 
to the setting forward of Thy Kingdom; that as we have gratefully received the benefits 
Thy bounty has bestowed, so we may cheerfully share them with Thy children in all the 
world; for His sake whose life and death and rising to life again were a song of praise to 
Thee, O Thou Most Holy, our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen. 

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 
O God, who has sent Thy beloved Son to be unto us the Way, the Truth and the Life; grant 
that we, looking unto Him may set forward the teaching power of Thy Church, to the nurture 
of Thy children, the increase of Thy Kingdom and the glory of Thy Son, Jesus Christ our 
Lord. Amen. 

DIOCESAN MISSIONARIES 
O Lord and Heavenly Father, without whom we can do no good thing, but with whose 



help even Thy little ones go forth as the mighty, we beseech Thee to prosper the work of 
all Thy missionaries, wherever they may be (and especially the work of Thy servant . . . .) 
Grant them the wisdom to know and the strength to do Thy will, and bless them with 
the hope and consolation of Thy heavenly promises, for the sake of Thy Son, Our Saviour, 
Jesus Christ. Amen. 

COLLEGE WORK AND CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES 
We pray, O Lord, for guidance as we search for laborers for Thy harvest. May we 
remember that whatever our calling, it may be directed to Thee. Bless teachers, students, 
and chaplains at all institutions of learning. Open our eyes that we may find and encourage 
the right young men and women for full time church work. In Jesus' name. Amen. 

THE CHURCH PERIODICAL CLUB 
O Lord Jesus Christ, Who art the Light of the World, pour out, we beseech Thee, upon all 
Thy servants Thy Holy Spirit of Wisdom and understanding that they may know the hope 
of Thy calling, the riches of Thine inheritance in the saints, and the greatness of Thy 
power to us who believe. More especially we pray Thee to direct and prosper the Church 
Periodical Club that in all its prayer and labor it may be enabled to make the light of Thy 
glory shine forth in the dark places of the earth. And do Thou of Thy mercy and grace 
establish Thy Church in the truth of Thy Gospel, who livest and reignest with the Father 
and the Holy Spirit ever One God, world without end. Amen. 

USE BEFORE AND AT THE TIME OF THE ELECTION OF OFFICERS 
O Holy Spirit, Whose guidance and inspiration alone can enable us to fulfill the Will of 
God, teach us, we pray Thee, the dignity of our work as churchwomen, and give us grace 
to choose as our leaders those whom Thou dost call to Thy faithful service. To those so chosen 
give a spirit of reverence in the exercise of their office, and to all of us a deep sense of our 
obligation in the discharge of every duty, to do all to the glory of God through Jesus Christ 
our Lord. Amen. 

BENEDICTION 
May the blessings of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, rest 
upon us and upon all work and worship done in His name. May He give us light to guide 
us, courage to support us, and love to unite us, now and forevermore. Amen. 

SERVICE FOR INSTALLATION OF OFFICERS 
For Branch Use 

The Officers and Board shall advance to the Altar rail, then the President shall say: 

Reverend Sir, on behalf of the women of Church, I present to you the 

Officers of the Episcopal Churchwomen of this parish. 

RECTOR: Let us pray. 

Blessed Spirit of God, come to these Thy servants in all Thy fullness and power. 
Compass their minds with wisdom. Fire their wills with Thy might. Melt their hearts 
with Thy love. Through Thy grace make them wholly Thine until they are lost in Thee; 
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Will you accept the responsibilities placed upon you, and endeavor to discharge the 
duties of leadership to the best of your ability? 

OFFICERS: We will. 

RECTOR: Will you, through private prayer, Bible study, and regular attendance at the 
Holy Communion, seek to grow in knowledge of God and His purpose for you, and for 
the world? 

OFFICERS: We will. 

RECTOR: Will you strive by word and deed for the advancement of God's kingdom in 
this parish and beyond? 

OFFICERS: We will. 

RECTOR: Let us pray: 

Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, visit, we pray Thee, these officers of the Episcopal Church- 
women with Thy love. Enlighten their minds more and more with the light of the Gospel so 
that they may walk before Thee in humility, yet with a high sense of the great privilege 
of their responsibility. Save them from complacency and fear of new ways; and give them 
selflessness — patience — courage — gentleness — thankfulness — humor — faithfulness — en- 
thusiasm — wisdom. So, as they daily present themselves to Thee for renewal, may they be 



even stronger channels of Thy grace, and instruments of Thy will in the spiritual life of the 
Diocese. Amen. 

The Blessings of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, be upon you 
and remain with you for ever. Amen. 

SERVICE OF INSTALLATION OF 
OFFICERS FOR THE EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 

Let those who have been elected stand before the Bishop and then let him say: 
It is right and fitting that those who have been duly elected as Officers of the Episcopal 
Churchwomen, Diocese of North Carolina, should be formally received and admitted into 
their respective offices in your presence; and that we should ask the blessings of God upon 
them for their support and guidance in the performance of the duties which you have 
laid upon them. 

O Lord, save these Thy servants, 
Who put their trust in Thee, 
Send them help from the holy place, 
And evermore mightily defend them, 
O Lord, hear our prayer. 
And let our cry come unto Thee. 
Let us pray. 
Our Father . . . 

Direct us, O Lord, in all our doings, with Thy most gracious favour, and further us 
with Thy continual help; that in all our works begun, continued and ended in Thee, we may 
glorify Thy holy name, and finally by Thy mercy, obtain everlasting life; through Jesus 
Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Almighty God, the giver of all good gifts; give Thy Grace, we humbly beseech Thee, 
to these Thy servants who have been chosen to serve Thee in the special work for which 
they have been selected; grant unto them zeal and earnestness in the performance of their 
office; wisdom and strength to meet each day their task; and love in the doing of it; and 
give them vision to see their opportunities for service, to the glory of Thy great name and 
the benefit of Thy Holy Church, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Bless us, O God, with the vision of Thy Being and Thy Beauty, that in the strength 
of it we may work without haste and without rest; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

I receive and admit you to the office of Be faithful, zealous, sincere 

and humble in all your tasks, and may the Grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of 
God our Father and the guiding fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you evermore. Amen. 

BENEDICTION 
The Father, Son and Holy Ghost bless, preserve and keep you, in your work, in your 
worship, this day and always, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 



PRESIDENT'S ADDRESS 

Episcopal Churchwomen 

Ninety-Seventh Annual Meeting, May 1-2, 1979 

St. Luke's Church 

Salisbury, N.C. 

Bishop Fraser, Delegates, and Guests: This is the Ninety-seventh Meeting of the Episcopal 
Churchwomen of our Diocese and the new President who is installed tomorrow will serve until 
our 100th anniversary. As I reflect on this, I am keenly aware of the dedicated and committed 
Christian women who have preceeded us and the legacy they have left. 

I am awed when I think of all that Churchwomen have accomplished within the church, in 
our communities and in the world during these years — the differences we have made in the 
quality of the lives of others. I glory in the courage of the women who have been the 
consciousness-raisers where important issues face the church and society. I am impressed 
with the historic patience of our mothers and grandmothers who accepted their roles in the 
church with love and dedication while having neither voice nor vote. I am thankful for the 
untiring efforts of the churchwomen who worked for 24 years to bring that omission to an end. 
I am excited to see women now taking their places in decision-making positions at all levels in 
the church. I am grateful for my heritage as an Episcopal Churchwoman. 

The organization of the Episcopal Churchwomen in our Diocese continues to be a viable 
vehicle through which many women respond to their calls to ministry. There are those in the 
church who question our existence, thinking we have outlived our purpose; yet there are 
others who wonder and marvel at the way we continue to flourish while other organizations 
flounder and fail. My answer to them is that we continue to exist and to flourish because 
women have always been willing to dare, to reach out in faith; we are not afraid of change, and 
so we have always been on the leading edge of what is happening in the church. While the 
institutional church sits and waits to move on issues, the women leap ahead in faith, and act. 
We have an innate sense of loving concern about the needs of others and we respond to them. 
We provide continuing opportunities for education and spiritual growth; we are actively 
involved in numerous outreach projects; we raise money for missions at home, in the nation 
and abroad. We also offer leadership training for women and act as a support group for them. I 
believe that the ministry of the ECW is valid and is still vital to the life of the church. 

It is interesting to note that at this time there are only two parish churches which do not have 
either a branch of the Episcopal Churchwomen or a liaison relationship with us. Of the 17 
missions that are not affiliated in any way, 13 of them are unorganized. Most of our branches 
are small because we are a Diocese of small churches — 80% of our churches have 300 or less 
members. One problem that concerns Branch officers is the lack of participation by all women 
in their churches. But since records of Annual Meetings for the past ninety years show this has 
always been true, it should by now be a non-issue for us. Instead let us be concerned with the 
quality of leadership, commitment and vision we offer the church. 

The activities of churchwomen this past year attest to their vitality. Attendance at Annual 
Meeting of 1978 was the largest in our history. Exhibits at the resource fair were proof of the 
creativity and resourcefulness of the churchwomen in the Diocese as they shared with one 
another ways in which they exercise their ministries. 

The year was not without crisis. A last minute cancellation by our Fall Seminar leader proved 
to be a blessing and not a disaster when the Rev. John Yates of Sewickley, Pennsylvania agreed 
to come and lead it for us. the fact that we continue to fill this conference to capacity is 
indicative that it is answering the desire of women for continuing christian education. Our 
sixth seminar this October will have Ms. Verna Dozier, one of our church's greatest Lay Bible 
teachers, as leader. She was one of the keynote speakers at Triennial in Minneapolis and is in 
such great demand throughout the country that it has taken us two years to get on her calendar. 



Our theme, "Mine Eyes Have Seen Thy Salvation," will be a study of the book of Luke, which 
is the National Church's chosen book of study for advent, 1979. 

Attendance at our worship retreat in February was poor, but for those who braved the snow 
and joined the Rev. William Dols to explore "Our Many Splendored Selves," it was a great 
experience and one to be long remembered for a unique approach to study of the parables. The 
response to our last several worship retreats however, has caused us to evaluate the need for 
them. At one time the Churchwomen offered almost the only opportunities available for 
retreats and quiet days, but in recent years the need for solitude and reflection has become so 
vital for Christians that parishes and other organizations are also responding and there are 
now numerous organized activities available to address those needs. Based on these facts, and 
the information that the Terraces is to be placed on the market to be sold, the Executive Board 
made a decision at its February Board meeting not to hold a retreat in 1980. 

Spring planning days were well attended and members of the Executive Board believe this is 
one of our most successful Diocesan activities. Your Comments, indicating that they are 
helpful in your planning, and prepare you to do a better job in your Branch offices, assures us 
that we are meeting your needs. This year the Diocesan Education and Training Committee 
under the leadership of the Rev. Harrison Simons, offered us its professional expertise and led 
our Christian Education Workshops; these proved particularly valuable to those responsible 
for christian education in the branches. 

Our financial condition is sound and we are delighted to report that many of you increased 
your Branch pledges to the Diocese enabling us to support the work of the church beyond the 
Diocese and to continue giving scholarships to our institutions. We hope that many others will 
follow your lead this year. Your giving to the Christmas Missionary Fund and Epiphany 
Offering showed a slight decrease in 1978, but the greatest change is reflected in your 
"specials" which is almost $10,000 less than last year. It would be interesting to know if this is 
the result of inflation or because the Branch treasurers do not send all monies through the 
Diocesan Treasurer's Office. Our united thank offering continues to increase and totaled 
$39,577.64 this year, a witness to your belief in this program. Your response to the Migrant 
Fund has been tremendous and it now totals over $3,500.00. At the Executive Board Meeting 
this morning we agreed to use $2,000.00 of this fund to provide insurance, gasoline, and 
maintenance for the second hand station wagon given the Health Care Center at Newton 
Grove by St. Paul's Church, Winston-Salem. Expenditure of monies for this need seems to 
meet our guidelines of "emergency needs not met by other Agencies." A vehicle without 
insurance, gasoline and proper maintenance meets no need at all, but with them, it will be able 
to provide the needed transportation to get migrants and seasonal farm workers to the doctor 
and to Memorial Hospital in Chapel Hill when necessary. The total amount of money handled 
by the treasurer or appropriate board member during 1978 was over $113,000.00. 

While our Diocesan organization is on a sound financial basis, at the national level the 
Triennial Meeting is facing very real problems. At Annual Meeting last year, I reviewed for you 
the history of Triennial funding and the reasons for the present difficulties. That meeting 
passed a Resolution requesting that Triennial be included in the Executive Council Program 
Budget. Many other dioceses followed our lead. We have been advised from the Episcopal 
Church Center in New York that the Triennial has been included in the proposed budget for 
the coming triennium as a line item for $20,000.00 annually. But even this, with the legacy 
income, still provides only partial funding for the projected cost of future Triennials. Our 
delegates and the Executive Board have taken a look at our options. Rather than undertaking a 
capital funds drive in the future or assessing each Branch, we believe it is better stewardship 
for the Triennial Meeting to be tailored to stay within its income and simplify its meetings. 
Then if assessments are absolutely necessary, they should be small and levied on the Diocesan 
organizations. Tomorrow two Resolutions addressing this issue will be presented for your 
consideration. 

The Diocesan financial campaign of $2 million for Venture in Mission and the Camp and 
Conference Center began in January. The Diocesan council is firmly committed to proceed 
with the conference center only as the money is received. Earlier I stated that the willingness of 



churchwomen to dare, to take a step in faith, is one of the reasons we continue to be a vital 
organization. We have another chance now to step out in faith — are you willing to take the 
risk? Will the women of the Diocese agree to build one of the cottages at the conference center 
and accept a goal of at least $100,000 to do this? No pledges, no assessments, but money freely 
given from all of us working together. Acknowledging that this commitment will change 
branch and Diocesan giving patterns for the next four years — will it not be worth it? If we 
designate most of our fund raising in this direction, think what we could do! Why, $30,000 a 
year would not only build a cottage, but would furnish it! My faith in what women, with God's 
help, can accomplish, is boundless. How much are you willing to risk so the Church will have a 
place to gather enabling us to become the Church sent into the world to teach and to act. 

I am also committed to Venture in Mission. I hope you are. As Bishop Stewart Alexander has 
said, "Through Venture in Mission God grants the Episcopal Church another chance, to 
redeem our unconcern with growth, our timidity in mission and our missed opportunities of 
yesterday." From your pledges to the Diocesan ECW we plan to support Venture for the length 
of the campaign. I urge you to demonstate your commitment to these projects with the money 
you allocate for work outside the Diocese. 

As I have stated before, the church is affected by changes in society. Since our single 
population has increased and more women have returned to the business world, a need to 
minister to them has emerged and we recognize that our presently structure organizations are 
not able to do the requisite job. The Churchwomen have recognized that new programs need 
to be designed to meet this new constituency. Toward this end, we conducted a 
survey — hoping to get some direction for the kinds of programs that would interest working 
women and given them spiritual support. What we learned was that they desire guidance 
through retreats as well as practical help and information. Almost all indicated that they 
needed a degree of fellowship not possible solely through Sunday morning church attendance. 
They may require new quality programs at the parish level since their available time is limited. 
Because concern for working women and single persons, male and female, constitutes a 
problem that is very real in most parishes, I would like to see our Diocese sponsor a day-long 
conference for these members and offer mini-workshops on issues which are of concern to 
them: legal matters, financial advice, gift identification, single parenting leadership skills, as 
well as some opportunity for spiritual and educational growth. This is an area where the 
church at large needs to use creative thinking and offer new leadership. 

During the past two Annual Meetings, we have looked at opportunities available to us for 
Christian service. This year we will look within ourselves to discover our unique gifts of 
ministry. Once we have identified, claimed and affirmed them, we will be able to exercise our 
special "Ministry — This Gift to Christians" in a more positive way. Ms. Patricia Page of the 
National Institute of Lay Training will lead us on this journey of self discovery. 

As my term of office comes to an end, I am convinced that the three-year tenure should not be 
changed. The Presidency is a full-time job: the demands are sometimes overwhelming. 
However, I believe a term of less than three years would hinder the quality of leadership and 
vision that is possible only with the longer term of office. 

The joys of my years as president have been many; none more fulfilling than my visits to 
your Branches and the opportunity to know you. The experiences which were afforded me 
placed me in historical moments in the life of the Church, and I am grateful for them. It has 
been my privilege to serve at a time when women are being given opportunities of ministry in 
the Church never before possible and I have felt it to be my responsibility to speak for them and 
to remind the Church in our Diocese that it was rarely offering us opportunities to serve in 
policy-making and leadership positions. It is with thanksgiving that I tell you many heard and 
have responded during these three years. In some quarters of the Church, however, women 
continue to be used as tokens, therefore, we must continue to support one another as we seek 
to change the patterns of the past. It has been a personal satisfaction to see women take a 
renewed interest in the Churchwomen and to view the different methods by which they meet 
the needs of their parishes. We have finally learned that structures need not be identical, but 
may be tailored to individual situations. I hope we are learning that small can be great — -it is 



10 



creativity and vision that make it so. 

When I accepted the presidency, I spoke of the choice between Mudholes and Horizons. 
Choosing Horizons is better — not as easy, not as comfortable, but far more exciting and 
challenging, demanding and rewarding. Once you lift your eyes, you will never be content to 
go back to the Mudhole. 

I am grateful to our loving Lord for the privilege of serving as president of the Churchwomen 
of the Diocese. I thank you for your love, support and enthusiasm — and your willingness to 
dare. My husband and my daughter accepted this office with me and we made a commitment 
that for three years the Episcopal Churchwomen would come first in our family. My heart is 
filled with gratitude for their love and support and faithfulness to this commitment during 
these years of my joyful service to the women in the Diocese. 

God bless you all. 

"Let us go forth into the world to love and serve the Lord, rejoicing in the power of his 
spirit." 



PRESIDENT'S ACCEPTANCE SPEECH 



Bishop Fraser, Delegates, and Visitors: 

The Episcopal Churchwomen of this Diocese have been blessed the past three years with the 
leadership of Scott Evans. As I've observed her rather closely this past year, my admiration is 
boundless. She is a fine administrator, a devoted Churchwoman, and a committed 
Christian — whose vision, like that of the eagle, is limited only by the horizon. She is one 
special lady! Scott, you have our thanks and our love. 

Someone gave me a book entitled Here Am I, Send Aaron; there have been quite a few times in 
the past year that I wanted to reply in like manner. But here am I, and here are you. 

In the Gospel of John, we read the story of a small boy with two fishes and five barley loaves. 
The lad offered his small lunch to fee 5000! ! And God made it not only sufficient but abundant. 
I heard a homily that brought this familiar story to a new light for me. As God calls us to 
minister, we may feel inadequate and overwhelmed, but if we accept His call and offer our gifts 
and talents to Him, He will make them sufficient, even abundant. 

Our call to minister will be different for each of us. Whether we minister in the kitchen, 
tending the garden, nursing the sick, visiting the homebound, comforting the lonely, caring 
for the Altar — God can use our talents to do his work. I expect even a Bishop ministers more 
effectively because of the cook's ministry! 

But how can we minister or even hear God's call unless we listen? it is good to be involved in 
the Church, the community, and the world; but unless we first know God through our Lord, 
Jesus Christ, how can we bring Christ to a hungry world? So first we must have time with God 
privately and in fellowship with others in order to step out and do the work to which we are 
called. 

There is much work to be done. More women are working than ever before: over forty-one 
million. Twenty-three million of these are also homemakers and wives; eighteen million are 
heads of households, either divorcees or widows. The inflation rate is currently over ten 
percent and eating into savings and budgets at an alarming rate. One out of four persons over 
sixty-five lives in poverty; one out of two persons over seventy-five lives in poverty. Even 
among the affluent, upper-income families are worrying about making ends meet. The roles 
and attitudes of women are changing. Our roles in our homes, in the business world, and in 
the Church are changing. Certainly many of us are seeing ourselves very differently from our 



11 



self-view of ten years ago. We're recognizing needs, talents, and potentials that lay dormant a 
short time ago. We're on unfamiliar ground and not too sure of the direction we should follow. 

Sometimes we wish for a return to safer, more traditional ways. But some of us have 
glimpsed the openness, freedom, and adventure of new roles and it's exciting, if a bit scarey. 
We women have gone out on a limb before and stepped out to do God's work on faith. So 
wherever we're led to minister, let our joyful response be: 

"God, give us grace to live what you have dreamed for us."

Mrs. Eric C. Flannagan, Jr., Chairman of the Committee on Tenure and Structure, made a 
report on investigations to date of the viability of the present organizational structure of 
the Churchwomen and possible re-structure. She said her committee had attempted to gauge 
the importance of three-year terms of service on the Board in relation to the work of those 
officers. The committee recommends that tenure remain as presently set forth in the Con- 
stitution but that the possibility of combining offices be considered as vacancies occur.

The following amended article of the constitution was presented. It is designed to permit 
the Treasurer to be elected one year before taking office; this was moved by Mrs. Salinger, 
seconded by Mrs. McManus, and was passed:

Mrs. Don Blanton, Chairman of the Nominating Committee, stressed the importance of 
dedication to diocesan work. This is characteristic of those who accept positions on the 
Board. The following slate was presented: 



Report of Nominating Committee 

NOMINEES 

Vice President Mrs. William E. Adair, Jr., St. Stephen's, Erwin, N.C. 

Treasurer Elect Mrs. Nathaniel W. Smith, St. Michael's, Raleigh, N.C. 

Christian Education: Mrs. Joel K. Bourne, Calvary Church, Tarboro, N.C. 

Promotion Mrs. John T. Gregory, Holy Trinity, Greensboro, N.C. 

There being no nominations from the floor, Mrs. Blanton, on behalf of her committee, 
moved the acceptance of this slate. The motion was seconded and was accepted. The nomi- 
nated officers were thereby elected. 

Mrs. Evans introduced Ms. Patricia Page, Director of Training of the National Institute of 
Lay Training and Adjunct Professor at General Seminary who talked on "Ministry is a Gift 
to Christians" and then conducted a brief Gift Identification Workshop for delegates. 
Following the workshop a panel of three lay persons, Mrs. F. Durant Bell, Mrs. D. St. Pierre 
Du Bose, and Mrs. James Prevatt, joined Ms. Page and told how they had discovered their 
spiritual gifts and were using them to minister to others. The Rev. Peter Keese discussed the 
validation of the ministry of the laity from the viewpoint of the Church. Ms. Page suggested 
we use the process she had introduced to discover our gifts and then to use them in our 
practice of ministry. 

The session was recessed at 5:00 p.m. after the singing of Hymn 547, "Lord Speak to Me 
that I May Speak." 

At six-thirty p.m. dinner was served at the Salisbury Country Club. This was followed by 
a service of evening worship at St. Luke's Church. The service was planned by the Diocesan 
Liturgical Commission, the Rev. Uly Gooch, Chairman. The Celebrant was Bishop Fraser 



14 



and the sermon was delivered by the Rev. S. F. James Abbott. The United Thank Offering 
was presented by representatives of the Convocations and Past Presidents of the Episcopal 
Churchwomen, directed by Mrs. M. E. Motsinger. 

SESSION II 

Mrs. Evans convened the second session at 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday, May 2nd. Following 
the singing of Hymn No. 268, "I Bind Unto Myself Today," the Rev. Uly Gooch gave the 
opening prayers. 

Mr. Frank Ballard, on behalf of Kanuga Camp and Conference Center, gave an exposition 
of a variety of summer programs and pointed out that Kanuga seeks to complement, not to 
replace, the facilities of a Diocesan Conference Center. 

The Rev. Harrison Simons announced the Christian Education Summer Conference to be 
held at St Mary's College next summer. He referred to the team of fourteen who built up 
the Christian Education Committee's program in the Diocese which has designed conver- 
ences, workshops, etc. aimed at developing the Christian ministry potential of the Diocese. 
Scholarship aid is available from the Diocese for attendance at the Summer Conference and 
other workshops. He thanked Mrs. W. G. Long for asking; the Diocesan Education and 
Training Committee to participate in the E.C.W. Spring Christian Education Workshops. 
The setting-up of a materials resource center is on the Committee's agenda for the near 
future. 

Mrs. Long announced the 6th Annual Episcopal Churchwomen's Fall Seminar at Quail 
Roost Conference Center October 22-24. Ms. Verna Dozier, an outstanding Bibie teacher 
of the Church, will lead the seminar on the theme "Mine Eyes Have Seen Thy Salvation." 
The Rev. King Cole St. Andrew's Church, Morehead City, N.C. will serve as chaplain. The 
conference fee is $60 for residents; $15 daily rate for commuters. A $25 deposit is necessary 
and is not refundable after October 10th. Commuters are asked to make a commitment to 
attend the entire time of the conference so that the full impact of the study can be assured. 

Mrs. Eric G. Flannagan, Jr. gave a progress report on the Camp and Conference Center, 
tracing the beginning of the effort to build such a Center to the 94th Annual Meeting of the 
Diocese at which we asked for a feasibility study to be financed by the Churchwomen. The 
site having been given to the Diocese, the goal of $1,400,000 has been set and construction 
of the roadway to the site is beginning. The camp site and the lake are now available for day 
use, and the architect has been authorized to begin drawings of the main lodge, including 
sixteen double bedrooms. It is desired to add four single houses as funds become available, 
and the cost of each is estimated at $110,000. Mrs. Flannagan urged the Churchwomen to 
engage in active support and participation in raising funds. 

Mrs. W. E. Adair, Chairman of the Resolutions Committee, read the following resolutions, 
moving their adoption; after being seconded, they were passed. 

A RESOLUTION ON THE CAMP AND CONFERENCE CENTER 

Whereas THE EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN were one of three groups in the Diocese to 
first recognize the need for a Camp and Conference Center in the Diocese of North Caro- 
lina and requested the Diocesan Convention to explore the feasibility of building such 
a center and provided part of the funds for this study, and 

Whereas the delegates to Annual Meeting passed a resolution in 1977 stating their continuing 
desire for a Camp and Conference Center and pledged to support it financially, if approved 
by the Diocesan Convention, and 

Whereas the Diocesan Convention in 1978 did vote to undertake a capital funds campaign to 
build a Camp and Conference Center, and 

Whereas the EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN are identified throughout the Diocese as being 
the catalysts for the project, therefore be it 

Resolved that the EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN of North Carolina pledge at least $100,000 
to the Capital Funds Campaign for the Camp and Conference Center, the monies to come 



15 



from funds earned in Branches by various projects, through gifts and from bequests, and 
be it further 
Resolved that this pledge is in addition to Parish goals and pledges, and be it further 
Resolved that this money be directed toward the construction of one of the cottages at the 
Conference Center which we request the Diocesan Council to name in honor of the 
EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN OF THE DIOCESE OF NORTH CAROLINA, and be it 
further 
Resolved that a copy of this resolution be sent to the Diocesan Council, the Campaign Com- 
mittee, and The Communicant. 

A RESOLUTION ADDRESSING CHANGES IN THE FOSTER CARE SYSTEM 
IN NORTH CAROLINA 

Whereas the basic right of all children is to have a permanent home, and ideally a family to 
love, care for, and nurture them and 

Whereas 10,000 children in North Carolina are presently in foster care, most of whom have 
no plans for a permanent home, no sense of direction, no purpose to their foster care ex- 
perience, and 

Whereas the present foster care system with heavy caseloads for social workers, high staff 
turnovers, nonpermanent homes for children, a lack of clear guidelines for entrance and 
exit from foster care results in inappropriate placement and infrequent review of the child's 
placement, and 

Whereas North Carolina Senate Bill No. 276 proposes changes in our present foster care 
system that would achieve permanency planning for North Carolina's 10,000 foster care 
children by providing a tracking system, a clarification of standards for termination of 
parental rights, funds for training adoptive and foster parents of children with special 
needs, additional trained and experienced staff to work with these children and their 
parents, and ways and means to provide children and families with diagnostic resources, 
professional counseling, family therapy and rehabilitation services, therefore be it 

Resolved that the delegates to this 97th Annual Meeting fo the Episcopal Churchwomen go 
on record supporting North Carolina Senate Bill No. 276 and urge the members of their 
Parishes to join them in contacting their legislators in the General Assembly to support this 
bill, and be it further. 

Resolved that delegates to this meeting become better informed about the problems of foster 
care and make a determined effort to make our local communities aware of the need to 
improve the present system. 

RESOLUTION ON SHORTER LENGTH OF TRIENNIAL MEETING 
Whereas the Triennial Meeting is valuable opportunity for leadership training, education, 

and inspiration and should continue, and 
Whereas the expenses of the Triennial are increasing, due in part to the length of the Meet- 
ing, and 
Whereas available funding is decreasing due to inflation and termination of former fund- 
ing, and 
Whereas the cost to dioceses of sending delegates to Triennial is increasing at a more rapid 

rate than the income of most dioceses, and 
Whereas good stewardship demands wise use of time and money, therefore be it 
Resolved that the Triennial continue to meet at the time and place of the General Convention, 
but only for seven (7) days. 

RESOLUTION ON TRIENNIAL FUNDING FOR A SIMPLIFIED MEETING 
Whereas good stewardship demands wise use of money, and deficit spending is neither 

wise nor sound fiscal policy, and 
Whereas projected expenses for future Triennial Meetings far exceed projected income, and 



16 



Whereas it is increasingly difficult for many dioceses to meet current expenses, therefore, 
be it 

Resolved that the Triennial Program and Planning Committee develop simplified plans for 
future Triennial Meetings that will stay within income for the triennium that is available 
from legacies, increased registration fees, a yearly diocesan assessment of $100 annually, 
and whatever funding is available from the Executive Council Program Budget. 

Mrs. John McManus, Treasurer, presented the budget as proposed by the Finance Com- 
mittee. The 1979 Financial Report was accepted as presented upon motion by Mrs. McManus. 
Her motion for the disbursement of the 1979 Surplus was approved and was allocated as 
follows: $200.00 for Heifer Project International (providing training for twenty families in 
animal care); three subscriptions of large print Forward for the Penick Library— $30.00; 
$100.00 for scholarships for Episcopal Churchwomen Training grants; and $599.61 for the 
Triennial Expense Fund. The 1980 budget in the amount of $21,500 for inside and outside the 
Diocese and for administration was moved by the Treasurer. Following an explanation of the 
deletion of the item of $100 for membership in Churchwomen United, Mrs. Mary Jane 
Bryant (St. Michael's, Raleigh) moved an amendment to the foregoing motion. Mrs. Wiley 
Long seconded the amendment. Several delegates spoke to the amendment, citing benefits 
emanating from membership in the organization. The amendment was approved. Mrs. 
McManus then moved that the 1980 budget, as recommended by the Finance Committee 
and amended by Annual Meeting, be approved. Her motion was seconded and the budget 
was adopted. The motion to allocate the 1980 Epiphany Offering to the Rt. Rev. David R. 
Cochrane, Bishop of Alaska, for his theological education fund was seconded and passed. 

Mrs. Evans introduced Mrs. Joseph Trott (Charleston, S.C.), Fourth Provincial Representa- 
tive to the United ThankOffering Committee, who addressed the meeting on regarding 
UTO as an Expression of Love and Concern for Others. She noted that the 1978 UTO total was 
$1,757,799.54 and that one grant had been assigned to North Carolina. In the year of Trien- 
nial, grants are considered by Triennial as a whole; thus the North Carolina delegation will 
have a voice in the next grant decisions. 

Mr. John Powell, Executive Director of the Episcopal Child Care Services, traced changes 
in child care clientele from orphan care to care of theose who are in trouble — particularly the 
emotionally-disturbed child. The Episcopal Child Care Services are moving toward be- 
coming a modern treatment center tor the emotionally-disturbed child and "how to help 
growth" is the theme of its mission. It is hoped that a chaplain will be included on the staff in the 
near future; there is an obvious need for this special ministry. 

The Rev. Ralph Byrd, Coordinator of Youth Ministries for the Diocese of North Carolina, 
reported on the scope of youth activities offered by the Youth Ministries program — 
providing opportunities for youth to meet together and receive a theological grounding 
during that time, including the well-established Acolytes' Festival at Duke University; to 
afford better youth resources at the parish level; to provide better leadership training; to 
initiate new programs in outdoor discovery, disaster relief training, and participation in 
General Convention and Provincial work. 

Bishop Fraser gave his Annual Message to the Churchwomen, addressing himself to the 
topic of the lay ministry and analyzing its various components: both active and passive 
roles. He said we must remember that each man is the same distance from Christ and that 
all need a firm grasp of the Gospel. He called upon Church people to recognize that they are 
bound to have faith and be faithful, to be both servants and leaders. The Lay Ministry should 
not be defined simply as activist; it can simply be; there is necessity for time to be quiet and 
time to pray. 

Mrs. Evans called upon representatives from other Diocesan institutions to bring brief 
greetings. They were: Mr. James Burt, St. Augustine's College; The Rev. Philip Brown, 
Penick Home; and Mrs. Susan Ross, St. Mary's College. 

Mrs. Willie J. Long, Jr., Chairman of the Committee on Memorials, presented a resolution 
memorializing the life of Leah Graves Peoples, Diocesan President of the Churchwomen 



17 



1942-43, 1944-45, and asked that it be filed in the minutes as a memorial to Mrs. Peoples. 

A letter was read from the Rev. Lex Matthews, Diocesan Director of Christian Social Minis- 
tries, commending the concern and effective leadership of the out-going President of the 
Churchwomen, Mrs. Evans. 

Mrs. Motsinger, Chairman of the United Thank Offering, announced that the United 
Thank Offering at the Evening Worship Service on May 2nd had totalled $273.83. She 
also noted that the Fall Ingathering was $21,301.84. 

Mrs. Max Stuart reported for the Courtesy Committee and presented its resolution of 
thanks. 

Mrs. Evans announced that Mrs. Harris had appointed Mrs. Kent Mullikin as her secretary. 

Bishop Fraser installed the new officers of the Executive Board. Mrs. Tyndall Harris, 
newly-installed President, gave the Presidential Address and announced that the Executive 
Board had accepted the invitation from Good Shepherd Church in Asheboro to host the 
98th Annual Meeting of the Episcopal Churchwomen, April 28 and 29, 1980. Following the 
singing of Hymn No. 279, "Praise to the Lord," Bishop Fraser pronounced the benediction 
and the 97th Annual Meeting was adjourned. 

Respectfully submitted, 



Mrs. Herman Salinger 
Secretary 



REPORT OF THE COURTESY COMMITTEE 



Bishop Fraser, Mrs. Evans, members of the clergy, delegates, and visitors to the Ninety- 
Seventh Annual Meeting of the Episcopal Churchwomen of the Diocese of North Carolina 
meeting in Salisbury at St. Luke's Church: 

Our coming together here in historic Salisbury amid the roses, azaleas, and fuchsias has 
been an occasion of joy and blessing. We are grateful for Bishop Fraser's message and the 
sermon of the Rev. James Abbott, and we will go home with a renewed sense of our ministry. 

It is with warm gratitude that we acknowledge the faithful, gracious, and devoted leadership 
of Scott Evans and look forward to the continued success of the Episcopal Churchwomen under 
our new President, Mary Harris. 

We extend our thanks to the women of St. Luke's for their tireless efforts in our behalf, 
expecially to the President, Mrs. Tomme Gamewell and her co-chairmen, Mrs. Ed. Taylor and 
Mrs. Paul Green. Our thanks also go to the Rectors, The Rev. Uly Gooch and the Rev. Jack G. 
Flintom, as w r ell as Mrs. James Padgett and the choir for the beautiful Evening Service. We will 
long remember the choir's arrangement of "Amazing Grace" at the conclusion of the Holy 
Communion. 

Mrs. Max Stuart 
Mrs. William Powell 
Mrs. Jennie Taylor

Episcopal Churchwomen 
Diocese of North Carolina 

We have examined the statement of assets, liabilities and fund balances of Episcopal 
Churchwomen, Diocese of North Carolina, as of December 31 , 1978 and the related statement 
of changes in fund balances for the year then ended. Our examination was made in accord- 
ance with generally accepted auditing standards, and accordingly included such tests of the 
accounting records and such other auditing procedures as we considered necessary in the 
circumstances. As to funds received, our examination was limited to recorded receipts. 

In our opinion the accompanying statement of assets, liabilities and fund balances and the 
related statement of changes in fund balances present fairly the financial position of Episco- 
pal Churchwomen, Diocese of North Carolina as of December 31, 1978 and the results of its 
operations for the year then ended, in conformity with generally accepted accounting 
principles applied on a basis consistent with that of the preceding year. The current year's 
supplementary data included in Schedule 1 have been subjected to the same auditing pro- 
cedures and, in our opinion, are stated fairly in all material respects when considered in con- 
junction with the basic financial statements as a whole.

ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE 
OF THE EPISCOPAL CHURCH 

The Rt. Rev. John Maury Allin, D.D., Presiding Bishop 
The Episcopal Church Center, 815 Second Ave., N.Y. N.Y. 10017 

General Convention: The governing body of the Church in the United States. Comprised of 
the House of Bishops and the House of Deputies, clerical and lay. Meets every three years. 

Triennial: The meeting of Episcopal Churchwomen held simultaneously with General Con- 
vention. 

General Church Program: The schedule of work adopted by General Convention to further 
the Church's Mission. 

Executive Council: The Executive body of the Protestant Episcopal Church which carries 
out the Program of the Church between General Conventions. 

Province: A number of Dioceses and Missionary Districts, adjacently located. There are nine 
provinces in the United States. The Diocese of North Carolina belongs to the Fourth Pro- 
vince, known as the Sewanee Province. The work of the province is educational and pro- 
motional. 

Diocese: A group of parishes and missions under the jurisdiction of a Bishop. The Diocese of 
North Carolina has 63 parishes and 48 missions. See the Constitution and By-Laws in 
this Yearbook for the organization of the Episcopal Churchwomen in this Diocese. 

Convocation: A number of parishes and missions within a given area in a diocese. There 
are five convocations in the Diocese of North Carolina. See the Constitution, Article X, in 
the Yearbook for the organization of the Episcopal Churchwomen in the Convocations in the 
Diocese. 

Parish and Mission: A fellowship of redeemed people doing God's work under the leadership 
and direction of a priest. A parish is self-supporting, whereas a mission receives support 
from the diocese. 

The organization of Episcopal Churchwomen in a parish or mission is known as a Branch 
and is patterned after the Diocesan organization. The membership is composed of commu- 
nicants who choose to be active members. The structure should be simple and flexible, de- 
pending on the size, interests, and needs of the group. 

In large parishes the Branch may be divided into smaller groups known as Chapters. The 
Chapters may have officers corresponding to those of the Branch.

EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 
History 

The first organized women's groups within the Church were called "Female Missionary 
Societies," as their purpose was to raise money for the support of missionaries. In 1871 
General Convention recommended that the women of the Church, in every parish and mis- 
sion in the land, be organized under the name of the "Woman's Auxiliary to the Board of 
Missions." This was done in 1872 and for many years the chief function of organized women's 
groups of the Church was to raise money for the support of the missionary work of the Church. 

When the Church reorganized its administration and the National Council was set up in 
1919, it asked that the Woman's Auxiliary, instead of being auxiliary only to the Board of Mis- 
sions, be made "The Woman's Auxiliary to the National Council of the Protestant Episcopal 
Church in the United States of America." This change widened and increased the responsi- 
bilities and opportunities open to the women of the Church. 

In recognition of the fact that women were a part of the Church, not just an auxiliary to it, 
in 1958 National Council created the General Division of Women's Work, the executive body 
on the national level, representing all of the work of all the women of the Church. 

Following this action the Triennial Meeting recommended "Episcopal Churchwomen" as 

the designation for the women of a diocese, and "The Women of Church", as 

the name in the parish. 

The history of women's work in the Diocese of North Carolina dates back to 1881 when the 
Diocese of North Carolina was the whole area of the state. The Rt. Rev. Theodore Lyman, 
Bishop of the Diocese, asked Mrs. John Wilkes of Charlotte to form a Diocesan organization 
of Woman's Auxiliary branches. In 1882 at the Diocesan Convention in Tarboro, representa- 
tives from six branches with a total membership of one hundred were organized as the 
Woman's Auxiliary of the Diocese of North Carolina to the Board of Missions, thereby be- 
coming one of twenty-six organized in the national church prior to 1883. 

In April 1959 at the Annual Meeting in Winston-Salem, a resolution was adopted changing 
the name of the organization to "Episcopal Churchwomen of the Diocese of North Caro- 
lina." It was suggested that, for uniformity, parish branches be known as "Episcopal Church- 
women of Parish".

1. You will be strengthened in offering help to others by participating fully in the devo- 
tional life of your parish. 

2. Seek to enrich your own spiritual depth by following a Rule of Life, such as daily prayer 
and devotional reading, meditation and Bible study, daily surrender of self to God to be used 
as a channel for His service, and regular rededication to Christ through the Holy Communion. 

3. Build up your own personal devotional library of prayers, books, pamplets, poems, 
hymns and tapes. 

RESPONSIBILITIES AS BRANCH SECRETARY 

You have been assigned a particular sphere of work. You should not let it become separated 
from the work of the others on the Board. All work of the women should be at the direction of 
the Holy Spirit. 

Keep your Board ever mindful of its reason for being, by seeing that worship is an in- 
tegral part of all planning and work. It would be well to allow for a moment of prayer, either 
silent or oral, before taking final action on any matter, in order that each member may seek our 
Lord's will. The few minutes required for this practice could transform a group to being "the 
body of Christ" in a very real sense. 

1. Lead the devotions at the Board meetings or arrange for someone else to do so. 

2. Plan, with the Devotional Life Chairman in each chapter, a devotion related to the study 
program. 

3. Plan Quiet Days, Retreats, Schools of Prayer, Corporate Communions, World Day of 
Prayer observance, the formation of Bible study-prayer groups.

MISSIONS 

Mrs. Oscar Cranz 
3808 Bonward Drive, Charlotte, N.C. 

The purpose of this office is to encourage churchwomen to participate in the world- 
wide mission of the Church. 

Information and suggestions to help attain this purpose follow. 

1. Pray daily for the world-wide mission of the Church. 

2. A good policy is to divide the Branch budget 50% inside the parish and 50% outside. 
Give to missions through your Diocesan pledge. This will enable the churchwomen on the 
Diocesan level to accept larger priority projects, thereby accomplishing more in a given area. 
Suggested projects will be sent upon request. 

3. Remember especially the missionaries from the Diocese of North Carolina. Pray for 
them by name and write to them periodically. Participate in the Missionary Christmas 
Gift for both active and retired missionaries from this Diocese. The total money collected is 
divided equally among them. Please see. that the check is made payable to Mrs. Oscar 
Cranz, Secretary (see above address) and mailed to her by NOVEMBER 15. 

4. By action of the 1978 Annual Meeting, the 1979 Epiphany offering will go to the Scholar- 
ship Fund, St. Mary's School, Springfield, South Dakota. Please encourage your branch to 
seriously consider participating in this offering. Send it to the Diocesan Treasurer. 



37 



5. Many branches have expressed interest in assigning a specific missionary to each 
convocation. The purpose is to concentrate their monies, prayers etc. on one or two people 
and become more closely involved with them. 

Below are the 1978-1979 assignments. 

NORTHEAST — Jocelyn Gordon, Sister Adelaide 

CENTRAL— The Rev. Mark Boesser, Miss Rachel Wolff 

NORTHWEST — Mrs. Harvey Simmonds, Miss Catherine Jones 

SOUTHWEST — Mrs. Henry Chapman, The Rev. James Fortune, Archer and Jane Torrey 

SANDHILLS— Stuart and Everall Peele 

6. Remember that mission begins at home and extends throughout the world. Christian 
Social Relations, United Thank Offering, Church Periodical Club, College Work, and 
Missions are inseparable in that each offers opportunities for mission and ministry to 
people. Every churchwoman can participate. Please do your part to make this a successful 
year.

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

Mrs. Joel K. Bourne 

618 N. Howard Circle, Box 1594 

Tarboro, N.C. 27886 

Christian Education is growth in our knowledge and experience of Christ. Thus, planning 
programs for chapter meetings in each parish should involve the women totally — should 
inspire them, energize them, direct them to Christ and His work. The programs can be 
tremendously varied. WORSHIP is a primary part and can BE the program. STUDY of the 
Bible, Old Testament and New with all the commentaries available inevitably reveals TRUTH. 
Movies, cassettes, film strips are invaluable aids to Bible study. DISCUSSION groups with 
Bible reading can be the program. Study of the FropnsedBook of Common Prayer, its lectionary, 
its church seasons, its new serives can be the program. PROJECTS to carry on His work 
can be the program. Each chapter OFFICER can be or be responsible for a program on her 
area of Episcopal Churchwomen's work. So, also, can be the Diocesan officers and they are 
willing to come. NEEDS in your life, in your church, in your community can be the genesis 
of programs. Your PRIEST, senior and junior wardens, altar guild, Episcopal Young Church- 
men advisors, Sunday School teachers can be the program. The forthcoming General Con- 
vention will debate some very timely subjects for our church that are fine program material. 
The HISTORY of your particular parish, its old records, its memorial gifts, its architecture, 
its leaders, its cemetery can be a fascinating study. And, finally, FELLOWSHIP — pure fun 
for newcomers, the newly confirmed, for ones we want to thank or honor (such as our 
parish's senior citizens, its leaders, our high school and college graduates), for ourselves can 
BE the program. 

The Rev. Messrs. Stephen Harris, of the Church of the Good Shepherd, Raleigh, N.C. and 
Harrison Simons, P.O. Box 194, Oxford, N.C. 27565 are the diocese's own Christian Edu- 
cation leaders who can be immensely helpful to you. The Rev. Mr. Simons has begun an 
Episcopal bookstore in Oxford that has invaluable resources. 

THE UNITED THANK OFFERING 

Mrs. M. E. Motsinger 
Pine Shadows Farm, Roaring Gap 28668 

INTRODUCTION 

The United Thank Offering is a practical day by day expression of thanksgiving in prayer 
and almsgiving through the use of our "Blue Boxes". The contents of the Blue Boxes are col- 
lected by each congregation during a service twice a year — on the Feast of the Annunciation 
(March 25) and St. Luke's Day (October 18) or as close to those dates as is convenient. The 
Diocesan offering is sent to New York. Disbursement of the National Offering is allocated for 
one year at the Triennial Meeting of the Churchwomen, and during the intervening years 
by the National United Thank Offering Committee. This is elected at Triennial on nomina- 
tions from each Province. 

Grants may be requested by any congregation and must be approved by the Diocesan 
Bishop. Traditionally the offering has been used mainly for missionary projects and to 
support women in special areas of the ministry of the Church. Funds are granted only to 
projects for which no other money is available through any part of the Church budget. No 
administrative costs are taken at any level from the offering. 

THE RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE U.T.O. TREASURER 

PARISH OR MISSION 

1. Be thoroughly informed about the United Thank Offering. Use your Blue Box and Thank 
Offering prayers regularly. 



39 



2. Provide Blue Boxes, envelopes and any information which may seem particularly perti- 
nent to the women of your congregation. 

3. Request time for a program on the United Thank Offering. Film strips are available from 
your Convocation Treasurer, grant lists etc. may be obtained on the order forms which you 
will receive from 815 Second Avenue, New York, N.Y. 10017. I will be delighted to meet with 
any group if you wish. Stress that the Thank Offering is a daily expression of love and grati- 
tude and not a "special" twice a year collection. 

4. Attend the Spring Planning workshop. 

5. Arrange with your rector or vicar for the Spring and Fall Ingathering services (as near 
to March 25 and October 18 as possible). Share with him any information you may receive 
about the United Thank Offering. It is most helpful if he will announce the Ingathering 
service ahead of time and will have it announced in your bulletin. Many times he will also 
be most helpful in preaching a special "Thanksgiving" sermon. 

6. Please collect and count the offering, consolidate it in one check if possible and send it 
to me as soon as you can. Later contributions may be sent to me at any time and will be 
placed immediately in a savings account where they will draw interest. 

7. The Diocesan Alms Basin is available to any congregation wishing to use it for their 
Ingathering. Please ask me about it. 

8. Do not hesitate to ask me for any additional information I may have received. 

9. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT: Many Episcopalians— both clerical and lay— really do not 
understand the spiritual and practical essence of the United Thank Offering. Do not be afraid 
of repetition — those who understand will appreciate it — those who do not may learn. Also, 
if it is at all possible, have extra envelopes in the pews and discuss with your priest the 
possibility of giving the loose offering as part of our Thanksgiving. In this way, all the people 
of the Church — not only the women — become involved. 

CONVOCATION 

Keep U.T.O. films and mail to branches in convocation upon request.

and information concerning the approaching Ingatherings, and to answer all corres- 
pondence promptly.

5) To serve as member of the finance committee. 



CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES AND COLLEGE WORK 

Mrs. Don Blanton 
Country Club Circle, Lexington, N.C. 27292 

We believe that every one embodies a unique personal ministry. It is the purpose of this 
office to help churchwomen find their personal ministry and encourage them to pursue it. 

Another duty of our office is to maintain a relationship with Episcopal students as they 
leave home to broaden their lives. 



40 



CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES

2. Explore our own interests, talents and gifts; then own, acclaim and use them! 

3. Remind each other that women are members of the "Ministry of the Laity." 

4. Encourage the knowledge that ministry is not confined to the church alone. 

5. Support all women in their quest for selfhood and service. 

6. Affirm our womanhood. 

7. Take comfort in knowing that: "anytime I am helping other people in any way I am 
ministering to them; I am showing them God's love through my action and my being." 

COLLEGE WORK 

The college work section of this office seeks to maintain a relationship with Episcopal stu- 
dents. 

1. Students who are away at college — 

a. Keep in touch with students. Make a file on each student and send birthday, Christ- 
mas, and Easter cards, newsletters, etc. 

b. Arrange get-together or honor the students at a regular church occasion such as a

PROMOTION 

Mrs. John Gregory 
5601 West Field Dr. , Greensboro 27410 

The essential duty of the Diocesan Promotion Secretary is to promote the ideas and 
activities of the Episcopal Churchwomen. It is her duty to keep all churchwomen informed 
of things to come and to report on noteworthy activities which have taken place. She is 
available to assist branch officers in promoting individual programs as well as diocesan 
sponsored ones. The effectiveness of this job depends somewhat on her being informed 
by local churchwomen about their endeavors. 

The Episcopal Churchwomen of North Carolina is a very vital organizati offering many 
opportunities for spiritual growth to all its members and prospective members. Communi- 
cating this message is the task of all, but particularly the task of promotional workers. 
In keeping with this, the following suggestions are offered: 

1. Convocation Chairmen and Branch Presidents should be certain that someone is 
responsible for the work of informing the other members of what is going on in their organi- 
zations. 

2. Make effective use of your church bulletins and/or newsletters to inform members 
about coming events and activities. 

3. Assist other branch officers with your ideas and imagination in promoting the ECW 
and in promoting their respective programs. 

4. Establish a good relationship with your local press and solicit their aid in promoting 
your work. 

5. Inform other women in the Diocese of any activities or projects which you feel are out- 
standing by reporting them in the North Carolina Churchman. 

6. Contact your Diocesan Secretary for any assistance she may be able to give you in 
carrying out the above suggestions. 



41 



ALTAR WORK AND SERVICE OF EXCHANGE 

Mrs. Charles Shaffer 
716 Gimghoul Drive, Chapel Hill 27514 

Altar Work is rewarding and meaningful service in all of its phases. Anything done in 
God's service and to His Glory should be performed with love and to the best of our 
ability. Parishes have different needs and customs. No attempt will be made to standardize. 
The object is to increase the efficiency and devotion of each Guild in carrying out the 
wishes of the Rector. Our Lord accepted the ministry of faithful women during His earthly 
life. We pray that He accept and bless the work which our Guilds undertake in the care of their 
Sanctuaries. 

In the individual branches the Altar Guild Chairman is not always an officer of the 
ECW. In fact, there may not be a specific person to whom these responsibilities would be 
delegated. In such cases, I would appreciate those having access to this hand book assuring 
that the proper person, Rector or Altar Guild Chairman be given this information, so 
they may avail themselves of the services of this office. I encourage your correspondence 
on any help needed. 

This office will provide help in: 

1. Setting up procedures for Altar work. 

2. Teaching the skills necessary for maintaining a Sacristy, and preparing for various 
Services of Worship. 

3. Specific hints and helps for the various housekeeping problems which arise. 

4. Encouraging more ladies to participate in the activities of the Guild, and those in the 
Guild to refresh their enthusiasm for their work. 

5. Suggestions for services which the Guilds may provide other than the traditional 
housekeeping duties. 

6. In circulating items not currently in use by one Parish to a Parish or Mission where 
there is a need. 

7. In obtaining printed aids such as books, catalogues for Altar needs. 

ALTAR GUILD PRAYERS 

For use before work: 

Almighty God, grant we beseech Thee, that we may handle Holy things with reverence, 
and perform our work with such faithfulness and devotion, that it may rise with acceptance 
before Thee and obtain Thy blessing; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

For use after work: 

O God, bless and accept the work of my hands and all who minister to Thee in the 
care and adornment of Thy Sanctuary. Bless and hallow them who love the beauty of Thy 
House, that Thy Holy Name may be glorified; through Jesus Christ, Our Lord. Amen. 



CHURCH PERIODICAL CLUB 

Mrs. Wally Ausley 
215 Reynolds Road, Raleigh, N.C. 27609 

The Church Periodical Club, serving the ministry of the printed word since 1888, is the 
only organization in the Episcopal Church devoted solely to supplying free printed material 
to those who cannot otherwise obtain it. Its steadily expanding, adaptable program is unique 
among the churches in giving free materials to responsible recipients they themselves 
specify. It is supported by contributions and most of its work is done by volunteers. 

CPC functions on all levels, nationally, world-wide, locally — in parishes, communities, 
dioceses. Religious, educational, technical, recreational books, magazines, leaflets are pro- 



42 



vided for the most remote places and for nearest neighbors. Needs that exceed local 
resources are referred to National Books Fund. 

This fund is directed by a committee of experienced volunteers, meeting to evaluate 
each request. Most are granted as far as funds permit. National Books Fund projects have 
financed a translation of the Prayer Book in Malay to giving medical journals to the 
stations served by the S. S. Hope. 

How can CPC become alive in your Parish? 

1. Pray for the work of CPC for guidance asking God to direct you in spreading the 
Good News with the printed word. 

2. Plan to publicize the work of CPC to all men, women and children in your parish by 
observing the first Sunday in October. (CPC Sunday) 

3. Plan to educate your parish on CPC Sunday in the importance of continuing to 
supply printed materials to people around the world. 

4. Use your parish bulletin and meetings in your parish to remind them of CPC Sunday in 
October. Use the CPC prayers at all services and meetings that week in your parish. 

In our Diocese, the CPC work is done through the Episcopal Churchwomen, 
headed by a Diocesan Director of CPC and carried out by CPC secretaries in the branches. 
The Secretary of Missions could also serve as CPC Secretary in those churches of small 
membership. 

NOTES: 

All contributions should be sent to the Diocesan Director of CPC. All contributions should 
be made by check payable to Church Periodical Club. Do not remit to the Diocesan Treasurer. 
Enclose a memo showing the source so proper credit can be given. 

When your branch or parish sends a check to the National Books Fund as a memorial 
or as a gift to a Seminarian, the CPC secretary should so inform the recipient of the memorial 
or gift.

PRESIDENT'S CROSS 

The engraved silver Celtic cross worn by the Diocesan President during her term of office 
was a gift of Mrs. Leslie Evans in 1956. She wore the cross during her administration as 
President of the Woman's Auxiliary and presented it to Mrs. T. P. Thomas at her installation at 
Annual Meeting, in the Church of the Good Shepherd, Raleigh, in 1958. The back of the cross 
bears the inscription: "President, itWoman's Auxiliary, Diocese of North Carolina." 

PENDULA 

The pendula is worn by all Diocesan Past-Presidents in the IV Provce. It is an oval of gold or 
silver, with a Chi-Rho symbol bearing seventeen stars on the crossbars. The stars represent the 
number of Diocese in the Province. The pendula is a gift to our Retiring Diocesan President by 
Dr. Philip DeWolfe, now of Florida, in memory of his mother, Elizabeth Owens DeWolfe. Dr. 
DeWolfe's wife, Anne, was a member of our Diocesan Executive Board in 1963 when the 
decision was made to give the pendula to retiring Diocesan Presidents. At that time North 
Carolina was the only Diocese in the Province which did not present one to its President. 
Through Dr. DeWolfe's generosity, all living Past-Presidents were presented with a pendula at 
Annual Meeting at St. Michael's Church, Raleigh, in 1963. Mrs. James L. Godfrey of Chapel 
Hill was the Diocesan President when this tradition was begun in our Diocese. 

ALMS BASIN 

The U.T.O. Alms Basin is made of silver and gold collected from all parishes in the Diocese of 
North Carolina; an idea conceived by Mrs. B. W. Roberts. Mrs. Brown Patterson designed the 
center seal made up of gold wedding rings, pins and crosses donated. Mr. Louis Glasier was 
the Ecclesiastical craftsman. It was dedicated by Bishop Penick at Annual Meeting, April 20, 
1955 in Chapel Hill. It is available for Spring and Fall Ingathering upon request to the U.T.O. 
Secretary.
